The entire site was developed during fascist rule, under Mussolini, and this main sculpture took three years of uninterrupted work to complete.

Tour the site, which is dedicated to the more than 100,000 Italian soldiers who lost their lives during the Great War.

  • It is the largest among the Italian military Shrines, lies on the western slope of Mount Sei Busi that in the great war was bitterly contested because, although relatively low, allowed from its Summit to dominate, to wide, access from the West to the first steps of the karst plateau.  The monumental scalea on which are aligned with the URNs of the over 100,000 killed and based on that the monolithic Duca D'Aosta Commander of the third army, gives the image of the grid on a large unit headed by his commander.  Interesting to base a faithful reconstruction of a section of trench, open and accessible. Atop a beautiful chapel gives Crown to a majestic and imposing monument. In front, on the Hill a nice Park with remnants of war deserves a thorough visit.

  • I wanted it to be the first stop on the tour-holiday to celebrate my first 60 years, in company with my wife. Certainly not to a habit or because Redipuglia represents a pleasant tourist, indeed I meant to remember-and in doing so I was moved-the true father of our nation, that is, those millions of Italians--more or less consciously, but certainly with generosity and courage--have offered their lives to make our United country and free. I read many comments against the stupidity of war, and obviously I cannot share, but I encourage everyone to reflect on "those days" and the yoke that so many of our countrymen must then endure. Anyway, I thanked those worthies buried therein, most without even a name; and I felt proud--like my wife--being grandchildren of grandparents who (admittedly survivors) in those places and in the nearby mountains have fought and suffered, more than 1000 km from their families. The monument? Grandiose and majestic, but certainly not a work of architecture of great value. Fine, on the other hand, are a reflection, silence and prayer that inspires, especially when it comes to the top and we read that "present"-repeated so many times-is like the beating of a heart.

  • Historically very interesting but I have never liked the extremity in building these big memorials. The memorial is more about showing of.
  • very nice place. very interesting the museum in front of the "step monument"
  • There are no words to describe how many emotions transmits this place. Who is friulano knows it's a stage that must do once in your life because you will not forget what has been to make the Italy that we know today. Please respect the dead, ... is a memorial place. Not a place to lounge and get indexed by shouting.

  • Truly unique place that conveys a sense of grandeur to grandeur. Anyone who has the honor of a visit is the presence of more than one hundred thousand heroes who sacrificed their lives for their country. Maintenance is good, easy to reach the Summit (the chapel with the three crosses) by car without difficulty. It is absolutely necessary that the visitor takes appropriate behavior to the sacredness of the place

  • Majestic place, of a suggestion only. Exudes Holiness and love of country from any stone or blade of grass. Respect and gratitude are expressed in religious silence that relies on the history, the memory of the greatest and generous sacrifice offered to the country to visit with their children at least once in their lifetime.
