In the little church of Santo Stefano lies the tomb of the Unknown Warrior. The white marble cross on top of the hill commemorates all the Austrian and Italian fallen during the Battle of Bezzecca, 21 July 1866. The trenches date back to the First World War, when Bezzecca was the headquarter of the Italians in Valle di Ledro.

Author’s recommendation

In the summer months the museum (Museo Garibaldino e della Grande Guerra)  in the village offers the chance to learn more about the history of Bezzecca and Valle di Ledro.

Da vedere, sopratutto perché fa parte, di un pezzo, della nostra storia. In oltre, abbiamo avuto la fortuna che quel giorno, ci sia stata, una "rappresentazione" storica (o come è stata spiegata una "living history") di una battaglia, ambientata durante la prima guerra mondiale, tra Italiani e Austriaci.
