Don Pietro Brignoli and his Shot-Down Soldiers
On the basis of widely collected sources and the book Santa messa i miei fucilati, written by the Italian priest Don Pietro Brignoli, the author identifies the names of places where, during a great Italian offensive, in summer 1942, the 2nd Regiment of the 21st Infantry Division, also known as "Granatieri di Sardegna", shot more than ninety captured civilians and partisans. The names of the victims are also quoted.
