Execution of member of the Resistance

The partisan Nello Uscieri of the VII Company volunteered to go on patrol alone to Borgo alla Collina, his home village, where the Germans were concentrating now they were about to lose Poppi. Having spotted a hole drilled for mines and some bombs set to explode, Uscieri tried to disable them by pouring water on them. Spotted by the enemy, he was killed by machine-gun fire while fleeing.
