Castel Dante Military Memorial


The Rovereto Military Memorial, also called Castel Dante, is a place of great significance that was created to commemorate the fallen of the Great War in Italy. The remains of some 20,000 soldiers belonging to the Italian, Austro-Hungarian and Czechoslovakian Legion regimes, who participated in the Battle of the Solstice and the Final Battle of 1918, are preserved there. Among them are the remains of two illustrious Trentino irredentists, Damiano Chiesa and Fabio Filzi, who were captured in this area during the Strafexpedition and counter-offensive of June 1916. In 1967, the Sacrario di Castel Dante was included in a larger monumental area, which also includes the "Strada degli Artiglieri". There were also a number of artillery pieces and memorials in the large square outside, such as the one built in honour of Lieutenant Umberto Pettazzi and the one dedicated to the sacrifice of the Czechoslovakian Legionnaires who had fallen in the battle near Monte Baldo.
