Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy's North East

Monumento ai caduti di Trieste

The Monument to the Fallen Soldiers of Trieste, representing five men engaged in a dramatic war scene in classic style. Three of them carry a wounded comrade while the fifth soldier protects them with a shield. Overall, the monument is over 5 metres high, the statues are made of cast iron while white stone from Istria was used for the base. The latter bears the inscription “Trieste / to the fallen soldiers / in the war of liberation / MCMXV - MCMXVIII” referring to Trieste being part of Italy and freed from the Austro-Hungarians, a concept dear to the fascist patriotic nationalism.
