List of Sicilians from Forza D'Agro who died in the First and Second World Wars
Forza D'Agro is a smallish town on the eastern side of Sicily, a few miles north of Taormina, in the province of Messina. It is perched on top of a mountain, 420m above sea level.
Just off the town square on the Viale delle Remembranze, there are two white marble plaques commemorating those who died in the first and second world wars. I took a couple of photos of them, here are the soldiers named:
These are as they appear, except I've not put first names in caps, for easier reading.
