Nearly every Italian village Fred and I explored had a war memorial, but this one in Blera rendered us speechless. That it stands in front of school makes it all the more meaningful.

    Deeply symbolic, and emotionally charged--balanced and framed so well--the bricks and the rail spikes add so much to the feel
