With my family we climbed the Monte Piana, near the Tre Cime of Lavaredo (Drei Zinnen), in the Dolomites.
It was a SOTA activation that combined the radio with the history. This mountain was the theater, from 1915 to 1917, of fierce clashes between the Italian and the Austro-Hungarian troops.
About 14,000 soldiers lost their lives, in battles reminiscent of those of the Western Front despite over 2000 meters of altitude. An Italian-Austrian group of volunteers takes care of the vestiges of those battles. Trenches, posts and shelters cover the entire top of the mountain, in a fantastic panorama dominated by the 3 Peaks of Lavaredo. Thanks to all the chasers and activators for this wonderful activation. An unforgettable Sunday of radio, hiking, and history.
