32° Raduno Nazionale dei "Granatieri di Sardegna", Asiago, 4-5 June 2016

Dal 4/6/2016 al 5/6/2016
WORLD WAR

Raduno granatieri ad asiago e Cogollo del CengioOn the occasion of the centenary of the glorious days of Cengio, Cesuna and Magnaboschi, 4 June 5, 2016 and will take place in Asiago the 32 ' Gathering of the National Association of Grenadiers of Sardinia.

Among the many episodes of heroism that marked the participation of Grenadiers to World War I, one of the most famous is certainly the staunch defense of Monte Cengio.

On June 3, 1916, on theplateau of Asiago, the enemy launched a massive offensive against the positions defended by Grenadiers, commanded by Captain Frederick Morozzo della Rocca.
Attacked by overwhelming forces, by number and means, the grenadiers held out heroically to repeated attacks, until now no more victuals and ammunition, ended up engaging in a furious melee with their assailants and to jump into the void, dragging the foes, which were entwined in a suicide flight up to the bottom of the Val d'astico.
Since then, the abyss of Monte Cengio took the name "Salto del Grenadier" and in memory of this episode of heroism, the 2 Grenadier battalion changed its name to "Cash".

On 4-5 June, a hundred years after these tragic events, they will remember those who gave their lives for a more just Italy.
