War memorial of Piazzale Verdi


Area: Piana di Lucca
District/Locality: Lucca
Address: Piazzale Verdi, Lucca

The monument, located in the centre of the garden in the centre of the piazzale Verdi in Lucca, has a large base from which a tall square column stands. At the summit there are bas-relief fasces of lictors and tricolors. In front of the monument there is a cippus with bas-reliefs on which a large stone (from the Carso mountains) stands.
The work, designed by Francesco Petroni and built by the ANC inside the Park of Remembrance, was inaugurated 8 June 1924. Construction was interrupted for lack of funds and the work was officially completed for the celebrations of 4 November 1928.
