A moment reflecting on the past

Visiting monuments and historic sites has never been a huge passion of mine—even though I live in the country with the highest number of UNESCO sites—but lately I've been enjoying it a bit more. Getting older is making me more interested in history for some reason.

The Redipuglia War Memorial is an odd place to visit. And visiting it at night doesn't make it any less strange. The place has the austere style that's typical of the fascist era: there's no curves, everything is geometrical and imposing. But that style feels appropriate for some reason. It's a war memorial. Its goal is not to wow you with his style.
