Scogliera del Monte

(Mountain’s Cliff, 1870-1876)

Scogliera del Monte (Mountain’s Cliff)

Among the places of the Verano of intense suggestion is the terracing of the relief called Scogliera del Monte (Mountain’s Cliff): various rows of high walls built with blocks of tufa, a local stone from Roman area, support several marble steles of the deceased.

Built between 1870 and 1876, it is a highly evocative place not only because it hosts so many victims of that immense tragedy that shocked the world that was the Great War (1915-1918), but because it becomes an opportunity for a collective memory of the thousands of missing and heroes without name and faceless who participated in it.
