Stele to the Fallen of San Romano

 Stele to the Fallen of San Romano
The stele dedicated to all the Fallen (included those of labor) has been realized with cement. On it there is a cross with three legs in a rectangular structure of white cement and you can read the epigraph “...e sia la pace”. The monument is surrounded on three sides by a stone structure, on which there is a plate dedicated to the Fallen. The stele is located in a small Memorial park where, in honour of the Fallen, stay just two trees: a pine and a horse-chestnut.
