Area: Piana di Lucca

Address: Piazza dei Mercanti, Lucca.

This is a marble plaque with two bronze medallions with portraits of Cesare Battisti and Guglielmo Oberdan, above a rectangular commemorative epigraph. The plaque is on the facade of a private house overlooking the central piazza dei Mercanti that faces via Fillungo. It was commissioned by Tito Strocchi society, founded by veterans of Garibaldi's battles for Italian unity. Archival sources would suggest it was inaugurated in the first half of 1919.
