Memorial dedicated to the fraternity between soldiers
The monument celebrates fraternity between soldiers from different countries during the First World War. Built on the actual location of historical events, the memorial is part of a circuit of monuments honoring the Great War. A gradually sloped path carved into the earth leads visitors to a belvedere with colorful transparent sculptures and panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. The effect is open, generous and engaging to encourage gathering – evolving through the seasons with sequences of blooms and changes in foliage.
