    A beautiful shrine, built from 1934 to 1936 and inaugurated in 1938 (see the photo of the day of the inauguration) which gathers the remains of around 24,000 fallen Italians and 12,000 austro-Hungarians (first scattered in various smaller cemeteries in the plateau and then dropped off and gathered in the Shrine). The monument is of incredible beauty, solemn, as well as the wealth of detail and documentation to tell the whole course of the war and, especially, the bloody battles that took place on the Altopiano dei Sette Comuni and the nearby mountains (Strafexpedition or punitive expedition of 1916, battle of Ortigara of 1917, battles of three mountains and battle/final victory of 1918). Military plants, lines rather than partisanship, letters, letters and memorabilia illustrations include soldiers, honours and arms of all kinds. A must-have for students, history buffs and those who still have a historical memory and the meaning of Home. Attention to opening that is 9-12 and 14-17. To complete the visit, I would also recommend the 15-18 War Museum in Canove, a few kilometers from Asiago.

    View accurate and detailed interior with precise reconstruction of war on the face of the plateau. Of great historical value.

    I go to Asiago for decades; but everytime I step from the military Memorial. It's important to me, my grandfather fought World War I, and here the ferocity of the fighting and the death toll was crazy. I'm going to pay homage to these deceased, who so loved this country, victims of human pride and those from the back and sitting decided of their lives. I recommend also reading the headstones engraved with the words of Victor Emmanuel King of Italy ... a slice of history, which says a lot of things, in addition to written words.
