Monument to the Fallen of Poggio

 Monument to the Fallen of Poggio
The monument, dedicated to the Fallen of both wars, is composed of a tombstone in pietra serena* and a bronze sculpture which represents two soldiers (it is clear the reference to the First and the Second War) while they are falling. Under the tombstone and the sculpture, there is a basin in pietra serena and, on the right of the tombstone, a lamp.
*pietra serena: grey stone
