|Trenches of Mount Ermada|
Today we would not like to suggest you a special itinerary in this places (at which more attention has to be devoted sooner or later even here); we’d like rather to recommend you at present a travelling exhibition entitled Voci di Guerra in Tempo di Pace (Voices of War in Peacetime), which recreates and tells the story of WWI in the Karst and on Mount Ermada in order to preserve and promote to a modern audience the WWI heritage in the Duino Aurisina municipality. Organized by the Italian based Gruppo Ermada Flavio Vidonis the exhibition travelled from the Castle of Duino and arrived recently in Milan, where it displayed a series of photographs and artifacts collected during long-lasting searches all over central Europe. The next stop, in a renewed and enriched version, will be Treviso, in the Sant’Artemio headquarters of the Province.
The exhibition will be opened Friday, March 15th, with a reading from letters of soldiers of the Great War and musical accompaniment. Three sections will be set up. The first one collects many photographs of the Karst and especially of the neighboring villages to Mount Ermada during WWI and other objects in order to depict the destruction that this region and its inhabitants suffered. The second section describes in details the restoring work of the trenches and of other military artifacts on the Ermada defensive line and offers so an anticipation of the itinerary which can be undertook at place. The third section is then dedicated to the near cemeteries and monuments, such as that of Aurisina. The exhibition is opened till March, 29th.
