War heroes in 1915-1918 Tessari Luigi and Pietro

2015 is the 100th anniversary of the First World War 1915-1918 .
We would like to remember our family’s heroes, the great-uncles, Tessari Luigi and Pietro, fallen in war in young age.
Tessari Luigi and Pietro were brothers of our Grandfather Attilio, who was also an Alpine fighter but he was more fortunate than them.
Grandfather Attilio has strongly contributed in wanting to build a monument in memory of them, to be placed in the central square of Costalunga.
Pietro, a soldier of the Military District of Verona died in the Rovereto hospital for war wounds, at the age of 25 years.
Luigi, lieutenant of the Gunners in the Alpine Corps, died at just 20 years fighting heroically on the Piave.
Luigi was a student of Medicine at the University of Padova, and after the end of the Conflict was appointed Honorary Doctor.
His name is also written on the big portal of the Palazzo del Bo of Padua.

The stone bears the names Tessari Luigi (1898) and Pietro Tessari (1893).
