Forts (First World War)

The Great War in Valsugana and on the Lagorai

The forts are the evidences of the events happened here during the First World War. These areas where, as a matter of fact, the border between Austria and Italy, the location where the enemy armies faced each other.

On 24th May 1915, with the beginning of the war, the Italian troops started – slowly but surely – to penetrate along the Brenta valley and on the Cima D’Asta-Rava-Tolvà massif. That summer of the same year, the Italian troops were already in Borgo Valsugana and lived peacefully together with the local population, aiming to eventually get to Roncegno Terme and Novaledo.
The months went by but the situation didn’t change much leading to a trench warfare, where the Valsugana was the front.
Everything ended after the Battle of Caporetto: the Italians retreated and the valley became a back area for the reorganization of the Austro-Hungarian troops on the Grappa, Valbrenta and Plateaus frontline.
