This is a monument to resistance fighters and others who were murdered in WW2. Personal last thoughts in script letters on bronze translated into several languages nearby. In addition there are staircases leading nowhere of which each step is steeper than the previous one. Take...More
I probably wouldn't have seen this monument if it hadn't been for the fact that half of the promenade was closed along the water north and west of Como. You had to almost actually walk through the monument to get around the barricade set up.
The monument is modern and you may or may not like the interpretation of the art, however, you cannot fail to be moved by the reproductions of letters (translated into several languages) sent by the resistance fighters who were killed by the Nazis during WW2.
Located in a green park by Lake Como. The stones here were brought from Nazi's concentration camps and from the city of Hiroshima- Japan. On the bronze parts of this monument, are written words of peoples from WWII.
I have rarely been more moved by a single structure that this one. Truely worth the visit and the experience. It brings reality and sacrifice back to the traveller. For those who gave their tomorrows so we can enjoy our today's. Please visit.
