Purchaser

The monument is in honour of fifteen young Fallen (most of them Alpini), on a total of 65 citizens. The price paid by Caprignana during the two conflicts was really high and all the town had a great desire to honour their people by a monument. For this reason, in the first nineties it has been created a town committee, presided by the Vice-Mayor Elio Crudeli who has followed all the phases of realizations of the monuments.
