Area: Garfagnana
District/Locality: Vergemoli
Address: Oratorio di Sant'Antonio

The monumental complex which is located in the oratory gallery of Sant'Antonio, is composed of three tombstones: a Victory bulletin, a tombstone dedicated to the Fallen of the first world war and a tombstone dedicated to the Fallen of the second war. The tombstone dedicated to the Fallen of the first war is made by local white marble. On the right side of it some fronds of evergreen plant are engraved, on the left an eternal flame in honour of the sacrifice of the soldiers. In the lower part, you can see those military elements which often decorate the memorial plate: gun, helmet and fronds. In the higher part, in the centre, there is a star. The memorial phrase is engraved in the centre of the tombstone, while the names of the Fallen are written at the two sides of the epigraph. The four names of the corners are supplied of photoes in pottery-glass.
