Ghotic Line 1945. History, Memory and Territory

PROGRAMMA500xWe return to the footsteps of Italian History by remembering those who fought on the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines battlefields.

We will do it together with the 122 descendants of the US 10th Mountain Division veterans, who after six years return to Italy to visit the places where their fathers or grandfathers fought between the winter and spring of 1945, flanked by the soldiers of the 1st Brazilian Infantry Division.
We present the program of events to be held between 6 and 11 June to which we have given a substantial contribution in terms of organization.
