Colonna della Libertà – our heroesPosted by moscarelli
I wrote a lot of posts about this reenacment event. It was an intense experience for me and I wanted to show you that large amount of vehicles and uniforms. Mine is a replica of those of Gruppo Combattimento Folgore, the paratrooper troops of South Reign of Italy in 1944-1945. They are the English Battle Dress with Italian badges, because the old uniforms were lacerated by wear.
Here there is the same uniform but with the paratrooper suit and a more practical combat cap.
And now some images from our stop on the way to home. This is the tablet at Case Grizzano, a place, some houses on a hill, where Italian and German paratroopers found death only a few days before the end of the war, in a failed attempt to break the front in the plains from the lateral side on the mountains.
The cippus. Sad that there is nothing for the Germans.
The valley where Italians attacked.
A country cemetery, place of a German machine gun position. Now a empty cemetery.
