Memorials are “corners” of the city that keep the importance of the past alive, in order to give value and meaning to the modern world.
In Ravenna, there are many of them. From Dante Alighieri’s Tomb, in the heart of the historical centre, celebrating every day the work of the Father of the Italian Language, to Capanno Garibaldi, just outside the city, near the Pialassa Baiona and the southern Valleys of Comacchio.
From the Column of the French, commemorating the terrible Battle of Ravenna, to the stationings and Cemetery of War, related to World War II, which remind us of the value and price of freedom.
Gentle and stolid places, traces of out community.
