This mausoleum – it houses the bones of over 20,00 Austro-Hungarian and Italian soldiers – sits prominently on a hilltop overlooking the valley below. We walked to the mausoleum down a section of the Path of Peace after visiting the Peace Bell: it didn’t take very long. The structure has an austere formality about it, typical of the fascist style of architecture that came to prominence between around 1922 to 1943. Its dictatorial, authoritarian heritage is evident both in its style and positional dominance, which neither welcomes nor charms the casual visitor. The main entrance up the steps was closed at the time of our visit, but we gained entrance around the rear of the building. Internally, it is just as austere and unwelcoming – an air of slight creepiness pervades it – and it’s not somewhere where one would want to linger long. We left after a brief walk through it: no one else was present. If you are visiting the Peace Bell, this might be a brief side-visit, exemplifying as it does the wastefulness of war and the deeply troubling ramifications of unfettered nationalism. But I find it hard to find anything positive to say about the site. It’s a symbol of more troubled times, which I very much hope that Europe, and the European Union, has left permanently behind.

I enjoy learning about most all types of history, and I read a book of 454 pages called The White War about the terrible struggles between Italy and the German/Austrian armies during World War I. This monument, ironically built in 1938, just before the start of World War II, is a solemn reminder that more than 20,000 soldiers died to defend mountain ridges that really did not matter, when it was all done. Situated above a narrow valley that has controlled passage of travelers for thousands of years, it was deemed to be a strategic point, by those in charge of the armies, and was defended by both sides as a badge of honor, at a terrible cost. Inside the monument are marble slabs with the names of the known casualties, but no history lessons. Even in the slow November season, the tour guide staff person greeted us warmly and was eager to share his knowledge. Bring your children here so that they may better understand the horrors of war. I saw the interesting building on the hill, and just keep driving up the narrow little streets until I found this place. When my Italian friend complained to the tour guide about the lack of signs, he told us that they have been asking for road signs since 1938, but these things take time.
