This is a vertical stone stele with a bas-relief depicting the winged Victory with a palm bough. There is an epigraph at the sides, with the names of the dead appearing above in a series of small boxes. The entire composition is encircled by a large frame. The stele, by the famous sculptor Francesco Petroni, was unveiled on 24 May 1922. A bronze plaque with a votive lamp was later added in 1935-36, in memory of the students who died.
