Italian War Memorial

Italian War Memorial

At the Lighthouse of Saint Theodoroi, up the hill stands the Italian War Memorial, dedicated to the Italian soldiers of the Division Aqui who lost the battle by the Germans in an attempt not to surrender to them. This self-sacrifice and denial of delivery is reflected in this monument that remembers the pain of war and the values ​​of sacrifice and heroism.

This massacre had more than 117 victims, who were shot in Casetta Rosa (Red House, a short distance from Argostoli) in September 1943 (September 15th to 26th).

The construction of the monument began in 1975 and was completed in 1978. This semicircular space, enclosed by railings, covers an area of 52 square meters. At the monument there is also a white cross and next to this two inscriptions, one in Italian and the other in Greek stating the reason for the monument.
