The photo book by Andrea Contrini discovers the Italian fortresses and Austro-Hungarian situated on the Great Plateaus of Trentino and of the "Seven Municipalities" of Veneto: two fortified systems among the most impressive in Europe, located along the border between Italy and Austria and bound by the same historical events.The photographs bring to life a unique narrative that unfolds picture after picture. The passing of time has transformed the bastions of war in places of peace and keepers of memory. The author has captured visions of the past while crossing war posts and underground caves where one can still perceive the anguish that shook the fighters. Unfortunately the majestic mountain scenery surrounding them could do nothing to ease their sufferings.Nature, today, has almost completely regained its spaces trying to hide the old wounds and atrocities of what happened those days. The preface is signed by the historian Antonio Gibelli and the texts by the researcher Fernando Larcher. The texts are in Italian,German and English.
