The Tower and its Memory

In 1985 some British graduates met in Montorio to affix a plaque to the Tower that will remember, as the current owner Berti defines it, the last war service of the ancient Tower.

Peace has finally regained its rights to the tower, and it is to be hoped that it will never lose them again". “In a territory like that of the Municipality of Monzuno, which overflows with history and in which the stones speak, the Tower is listed as the most conspicuous monument; and it truly speaks still today, helping us to understand our history, both distant and recent ”.
