Ossario italiano e cimitero austro-ungarico di Feltre

Inside the civil cemetery of Feltre you can visit a place linked to the memory of the Great War, namely the Italian Ossuary and the Austro-Hungarian cemetery. In this area are housed almost 5 thousand corpses of young soldiers, who died mostly in the last year of war when the Massif of Grappa occurred some of the bloodiest battles of the entire conflict.

The dome of the Ossuary church is clearly visible even before entering the enclosure of the cemetery. To reach it it is necessary to cross the central avenue to the large porch that cuts the cemetery in two. Along the way you can admire the Monument to the Fallen of all the Wars in which, above a column, appears the bronze work entitled "The Resurrection of the Hero", created in 1920 by the sculptor Annibale De Lotto.

Once you reach the portico with the large Latin inscription "Silentes loquimur", you enter the Ossuary. Built in 1936, it consists of 4 walls that form a kind of outdoor vestibule and on which are the tombstones of the 1.072 Italian soldiers recognized. In the inner church there are two niches that contain the remains of 370 fighters without generalities.

Behind the Ossuary opens a large space, built between 1979 and 1982 in collaboration between the Austrian Black Cross and the Italian authorities, in which the bodies of 3.550 Austro-Hungarian soldiers were placed. The crosses are 1.550 and bear the name of the fallen man and his rank within the army. In the center of the lawn a marble monument, formed by three simple blocks, houses the remains of 2.000 soldiers without a name. It should be remembered that among these tombs there is also that of the Austro-Hungarian aviation ace Kurt Gruber, 4 times Gold Medal for Military Valor, shot down with his aircraft on 4 April 1918 in Primolano (VI), in Valsugana.
