Memorial stone to Silvio Cardini
Place of placement: In the woods below the village.
Date of placement:
The memorial stone is dedicated to Silvio Cardini, partisan of the autonomous formation "Carda", killed here by the Germans on August 20th 1944. It is located in the woods below the village of Carda and, although not far from the main road, it is not easy to find unless you are guided by a local inhabitant. It is a simple iron cross surrounded by decorative motifs, fixed in the ground and without any engraving or plaque bearing the name of the Fallen.
