  • Hard not to be moved by visiting this simple and uncluttered shrine where lie the remains of thousands of young people sent to die far from home, with eyes the latest pictures of gorgeous mountains and mostly unknown to them. Here you walk a step slow and the lump in my throat, while the heart beats too slow and the eyes on the quiet surrounding peaks. In the outfield are buried in perfect alignment with the fallen identified, from whose surnames can be seen from far away lands and Islands. In the Church are preserved the remains of those unknown ("unknown to us, known to God" is written on two great stones on the sides of the altar). This year we also found inside the Church, along with photos and texts, the perfect reproductions of "ceri" wood who ran this place exactly 100 years ago, in memory of the soldiers of Gubbio, in Umbria and in every part of Italy, which- Despite the suffering and furious battles on the Col di Lana-found the strength and tenacity to celebrate here, on 15 March 1917, the traditional feast of the candles, which a Royal Decree had banned in Gubbio. To commemorate that singular episode the event was repeated this year, a century later, by a large delegation of eugubini. A visit to this poignant Shrine, as well as a duty, is truly able to understand and feel many things. More details in my previous reviews. (7 September 2017 * visited *)

  • It's amazing the feeling you get in a shrine. This is very nice and tidy and to the visitor the sense and the intensity of the war and its dead. All this in the paradoxical beauty of the mountains where we stroll and where thousands have fallen.
