For the realization of this war memorial, designed and modeled by Walter Valentini, Studio Reduzzi held the role of project manager and, together with the artist, it also curated the techincal realization of the sculpture and its installation within Saint Ambrose square in Milan (Italy).
The art work was donated by Dr. Letterio “Lillo” Mangano in memory of the fallen soldiers of the Vicenza Division (Russian Campaign 1941-1943, whose he was a survivor) and those fallen for Italy both in war and peace.
