Monza War Memorial


Monza war Memorial is located on Piazza Trento e Trieste, which was the antique Pratum magnum of the town during the Middle Age.

This huge monument was done in bronze by Italian sculptor Enrico Pancera and inaugurated in 1932. A model of the sculpture is displayed in the town’s museum.

The sculpture represents the assault wave guided by Victory. On three sides of the monument, the passer-by can read the names of the 667 fallen soldiers of the military district of Monza. One of the fallen is Anna Galliani, a woman; unfortunately I don’t have any additional information about her.
