Campaigning for outstanding buildings

Cargnacco war memorial, NE Italy

Italian war cemeteries

In September Nicholas Long and Andrew Boddington, assisted by Gavin Stamp, will be leading a trip to visit the less well known but equally remarkable memorials and cemeteries along the front of the Great War in North-East Italy, following Gavin’s previous popular trips to the cemeteries of the Western Front.

The memorials and cemeteries, often in remote mountainous locations, were the result of huge Italian casualties fighting the Austro-Hungarians, and are vast and impressive structures, usually in an abstracted Classical manner typical of Italian architecture of their time.

The trip will be based in Treviso and finish in Venice, offering enticing possibilities an extended holiday there. See the event description for a list of the sites, itinerary and booking details.
