Look at the past

   The website www.sulleormedeinostripadri.it  project started off in autumn 2006 after brothers Andrea and Giuliano Gandolfi, in May the same year, had met Val Rios, Cruz Rios' son and President of the 10th Mountain Division Descendants.

His father was a soldier enrolled in the K Company of the 3rd Battalion, 87th Regiment of the 10th American Mountain Division, which fought on the Gothic Line (renamed "Green Line", from Field Marshal Albert Kesselring, in June 1944) in the high Tuscan-Emilian Apennine Mountains, in the territory of Modena and Bologna’s provinces, between January and April 1945.

    The book "In my Father's foxholes and footsteps" and the desire to do all those experiences and knowledge acquired in such short time available to history enthusiasts were the outcome of such meeting.

    The whole, lead by passion which shown by the rooms devoted to the Second World War hosted in the Iola di Montese Museum.

    We hope that this website, which we promise to improve and grow also with the contribution of those who are browsing these pages and photographs, will spark the curiosity and interest of anyone who wants to know his father's footsteps.
