  • Just below the castle of Solferino, at the end of an avenue of cypresses, you reach the "Red Cross Memorial" means a recognition to this organization which intervenes to treat and try to heal soldiers of various wars. The founder, Henry Dunant, in passing from Solferino 24 June 1859 shortly after the battle, he realized how important it was to give care and support to the many wounded left on the field. In that battle, which opposed the Piedmontese allies of the French to the austro-Hungarian army, are calculated about 40,000 victims. The Memorial collects the names of all the Nations that are part of the Organization and each one is symbolically present with his name written on a small block of marble from the same country.

  • The events related to the battle of Solferino 24 June 1859 led to the birth of the Red Cross. The Memorial commemorates this extraordinary event of universal significance. At the foot of much older rock is a path lined by cypress trees at the end of which, on a square, stands the monument to the Red Cross and a wall on which every country in the world where this extraordinary organization operates leaves its mark in the form a marble plaque. Is simple but fascinating place ul, for a short visit, gather in silence, admire the view over the surrounding countryside and meditate on the profound meaning of this great positive human experience which is the Red Cross.
