Dal Salento a Caporetto: quei salentini sepolti nel cimitero militare di Wroclaw (Polonia)


The Italian military cemetery in Wroclaw is a war cemetery located in Poland. Italian soldiers captured by the Germans after the battle of Caporetto on 24-27 October 1917 are buried there. The construction of the cemetery began in 1927, and its cost was covered entirely by the Italian government. The cemetery was built in the park area where the Grabiszynski Cemetery is also located. Five unknown Salento soldiers are buried among these thousand fallen. We tried to rebuild their own stories.
