Although this memorial was built in 1933 before WWII honoring victims of the 'glorious war,' it can be also described as a memorial to all fallen soldiers.

A big monument to remember the soldier and commemorate the first world war; the monument is near the lake of Como and from faraway you can see it.

While this is a monument built in the 30's to commemorate the War dead, and is visible for miles, in our view it is pretty ugly and a bit of an eyesore. Also the walkways around the area are very unkempt and look awful...and disrespectful....More

Monument well placed in the front of Lake of Como You could not unvoid to see it if You come walking into the area with the sea or if You come into the town with a boat. Memory for soldier from 1 world war.

The foreshore near the monument is in terrible state, uneven and dangerous to walk on. There are a lot of youths congregating here too. I do not advise going here.

A rather impressive monument located on the shores of Lake Como. Built in the 1930's and dedicated to soldiers of Como who died in World War 1. It is possible to visit the crypt and climb to the terrace

Nothing much to add to the previous reviews- the architecture is brutalist and completely out of place on the lake, but the setting is nice.

This is a beautiful setting for a memorial but the architecture it so out of place in this area. Our guide said the local joke is it looks like a battery.

This Monument built to commemorate the 650 solders of the region who died during WWI. It is one of the architectural landmarks of Como, located by the lake and open to the public.
