Shrine of the Martyrs of Benedicta

The Parco della Pace, on Monte Tobbio, was created to preserve the memory of the terrible events that occurred during the Second World War. And to remind us, as Gianni Rodari says, that war should never be waged.
There are things to do every day: washing, studying, playing, preparing the table, at noon.
There are things to do at night: close your eyes, sleep, have dreams to dream, ears to not hear.
There are things to never do, neither day or night, neither by sea nor by land: for example, war
(Gianni Rodari)
