  • Extremely well looked after in a very peaceful and beautiful place. Well worth taking the time to show respect to all the different soldiers nationalities buried there.  more »
  • We walked into this little cemetery just to take a look, during the city tour. The Guardian who has kept him with love for very long years has guided us in this garden, where not even a leaf is misplaced, letting us discover the graves of fallen Italian soldiers. Surprise and emotion, we found the tomb of our Sardinian countrymen, Giovanni Puggioni, twenty-two, who gave his life for the homeland in a place so far away. There are three other Italians, all very young and I really moved.
