FROM THE BIG WAR TO THE UNITY OF EUROPE
The first World War was a fundamental event in the history of Italy and Europe, it ratified the end of the empires and the birth of the states of a nation. Between Lagazuoi, the 5 Torri and the Sasso of Stria, an important part of this history was written, of which the testimonies are still alive in the most extensive and articulated open museum of the Big War, in the places where the battles were fought between the Italian and Austrian-Hungarian armies. The scenery which will house during the first week of July, an enormous ceremony commemorating the 90 year anniversary of the end of the Big War. A cultural event to shed light on our history, rich with values and contents. A trip into the existence of the mountains, a privileged location for a comparison between Man and Nature.
