    • Synopsis
    • Bassano del Grappa and the massif that gives it its name have been places of battles and suffering, aid and solidarity that have remained in history during the Great War.
      It is from the latter that "Heaven Rossi, Bassano in war" will start, but going to analyze different aspects:
      I. What has happened and how it was lived from the point of view of Bassano;
      II. What happened and how the conflict was experienced at the front juxtaposing war diaries and letters from the front;
      III. The diversity of a war that has seen for the first time protagonists weapons hitherto unused and strategies of attack and defense entirely new.
      A path memory of a war fought in a territory that is still an open-air museum, talking about the differences between Austrian and Italian soldiers and also of the incredible love for the country that has allowed Italy to the resistance and victory.
      The last survivor.
      An old man marked by the events, but that still has the strength to tell through his scars what was the Great War.
      The undisputed hero, who in his arms welcomed thousands of soldiers who would never returned home.
      In her womb flows the blood of so many young people who have defined every square centimeter of the sacred homeland.
      Your name: Monte Grappa.
      At the foot of the Venetian plain between the river Brenta and the Piave.
      For this it was cornerstone of the Italian defense.
      Back on places, remained unaltered in time, able to infuse excitement and revive the hours saddest and most painful lived by the Royal Army.
      Not only military, but men.
      Family fathers, sons, brothers and friends who sacrificed everything for an ideal.
      Heavens Rossi, Bassano in War, a groundbreaking documentary that no pity will bring new light on a known conflict but forgotten.
