Brief report about Italian trip
The author's trip to Italy had a considerable press and internet response, for example this one: www.ars-cartae.com. For the short duration of the trip the some subjects were explored, examined and photographed:
The Castle of Gorizia in the town with museum of modern art.
Fortifications of San-Floriano to the north of Gorizia.
The famous Venetian fortress (1580). It is the classic bastion fortress in excellent condition. All the town is inside of the round bastion front. Very cognitive and spectacular object.
There was the re-enactment (re-evacazione historica and "city day").
WW1 - Carso
Austro-Hungarian and Italian entrenchments and battlefields of WWI - Calvaria, Monte san Michele with 149mm long-range battery position in the caves, Monte Sei Busi. That battles are not known in Russia absolutely. This expedition could not be made without support, organization and help by Mr. Aleksander Jankovic (Slovenia) and Mr. Sergio Silvestri (Italy).
Fortifications of NATO of 1950th in Doberdo di Lago.
WW1 - Alps
By the courtesy and help of Mr. Sergio Silvestri we have seen the underground Italian fortifications of WWI in Verzenis. It was very impressive.
It would be a good idea to visit these places in the future with good equipment (namely - lanterns, ropes, climbing equipment and etc.) for more long period.
Venetian strong point and battlefields of WWI with Italian trenches.
Miramare Castle looks like the famous "Marlet's Nest" of Crimea!. The Castle of Trieste was explored outward.
There are few fortifications in the town and the Castle of Udine were seen.
You can encounter a number of WWI monuments all over Italy, but hardly ever WWII ones (on the contrary of Russia).
More then 700 snaps has been made and I do not know yet what should be done with all that treasure because all of these fortificazione are hardly be named word "Northern". However it all depends...
