The grave of Arduino Amati


Another grave located in Milan’s Cimitero Monumentale. This war hero, Arduino Amati, was killed at a very early stage on the war, in August 1915. He was then only 19 years old. According to the epitaph, his last words were for his mother, this explains the composition of the memorial.

Niccolò Baccerini


Niccolò Baccerini was 26 years old when he was killed on the Carso on October 22, 1915. There is no reference to his rank (I suppose he was private) nor to his regiment, which is more unusual.
