cimitero degli eroi

Roberta Wilde © Art in Death
Aquileia (Gorizia), Italy 2015

Small, evocative World War I cemetery. Built in the early 1920s it is the last resting place for many Italian soldiers. The many identical wrought-iron crosslay one next the other together with two more elaborated burial monuments: the grave of the Ten Unknown Soldiers and two groups of sculptural figures depicting the combatant’s sacrifice. Worth a visit for sure
