Ossario dei Caduti

Asiago, Vicenza, Veneto, Italy

Across the forests and meadows of Asagio are the graveyards of Italian, Austrian and
British troops from battles in 1915-1918. Some burials contain hundreds of men, others
only one or two. This tomb is for over 51,000 identified and unknown Italian and
Austro-Hungarian soldiers. It is added to yearly as hiker, farmer and forester find new
remains.

Thanks to Vinnie for phooning (and for the photo idea).
