  • Visited a couple of times. Symbol of the memory of the Italian colonial era in this country. I did not like the division of graves into Italians and Ascari, (those who were a real army of Eritreans under Italian command). By the way, with the Italian part always well cared for and that of the Ascari maintained in an approximate way. But Toto had not yet written "A Level" at the time. Unfortunately.
