What a beautiful gem, hidden away, yet so close.
Raffaele Messetti (4 years ago)
È tra le più notevoli chiese Carolinge in Italia, risalente alla seconda metà del IX secolo. Presenta una pianta su croce latina con volte a botte sui bracci laterali e a crociera sul tiburio. La copertura è garantita da una cupolaimpostata su colonne intuitivamente ispirate allo stile ionico tramite il disegno a rilievo di volute: per questo viene indicata come uno degli esempi più evidenti in Italia di recupero dello stile antiche durante la cosiddetta rinascenza carolingia.

Letteralmente nascosta nel cortile di un'abitazione, questa chiesa è molto importante poichè si tratta di uno dei pochi edifici di età carolingia ancora integri in Italia. Dentro sono conservati alcuni frammenti di affreschi del IX secolo.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
