Fossa dei Martiri


Let’s begin this new week with a photograph of the “Fossa dei Martiri”, located under the Eastern walls of the Buonconsiglio Castle of Trento. This name (which means “Pit of the Martyrs”) was given after the war, as it was the place where were executed the irredentists Damiano Chiesa (shot on May 19, 1916), Cesare Battisti and Fabio Filzi (hanged on July 12, 1916).
