The plaque, still found in the present day premises of the Misericordia of Lucca, consists of a white marble plaque with epigraph and frame. This is one of the first plaques to be erected in the town, inaugurated 10 February 1919, just after the end of the war. The work was commissioned by the Misericordia, an organisation of great importance in Catholic Lucca, that also oversaw the transport of soldiers' corpses from the front, under the guidance of Count Cesare Sardi.
