HIKES AND WALKS
Ortigara

Guided excursion through the Big in the Altopiano di Asiago-"Monte Ortigara: sacred ground"-from the Association "Plateau" Guides in the plateau of Asiago and 7 Municipalities

HISTORICAL EXCURSION-Special STRAFEXPEDITION In the SAME PLACES 100 years later.

Symbol of the cruelty of the war on the plateau on Mount Ortigara, also known as the "Calvary degli Alpini", still bears the marks of that tragic battle.

At a distance of ninety roads, trenches, emplacements and trenches, tunnels, barracks stands allow us to read, like it was yesterday, the unfolding of the clashes: Alpine battalions bersaglieri and infantry battalions and burned in the cauldron of a strategic necessity that became a tactical nonsense.

Now only the murmur of the rain, the whistling of the wind or thunder storms remained of that cacophony of orders, yells, bangs, gunshots, tears and prayers that have shocked this small portion of the world, last seen by so many men, climbed to date from half Europe, never returned to their countries.

Remain up here their souls which, as in the ancient legends, became thousands and thousands of beautiful flowers.
