It lies between the Venetian plain to the south and the central alpine areas to the North. To the west, it is parted from the Asiago upland by the Brenta river , and to the east it is separated from the Cesen-Visentin massif by the Piave river. To the north lie Corlo lake and Feltre valley. In the past, the mountain was called Alpe Madre Mother Alp , and is currently divided among three provinces: Vicenza to the west, Treviso to the south and Belluno to the northeast. The Grappa Massif was formed almost ten million years ago. It was created by the collision between the African and European lithospheric plates.
Despite being severely weakened after the battles of Caporetto and Isonzo, Italian Alpine brigades mounted a heroic stand atop this barren mountain and finally brought a halt to the Austro-Hungarian advance. The savage conflict claimed the lives of 22, troops, who are now entombed in this memorial, which caps the summit and is studded with bronze plaques commemorating the deceased. The epic ossuary, designed by Giovanni Greppi and Giannino Castiglioni in , mimics the natural slope of the mountain in five concentric stone rings that are positioned on top of one another to form a pyramid, which is capped by a small sanctuary, the Madoninna del Grappa. Both Italian and Austro-Hungarian troops are buried in niches dug into the stone, although the two sides are separated by a longitudinal avenue called the Strada Eroica Heroic Way. Look out for the grave bearing the name, Peter Pan, which is often adorned with flowers and toys. Although little is known about this year old Austrian soldier, the poignant connection between him and the ever-youthful fictional character is self-evident: both will remain forever young on Monte Grappa, known locally as Alpe Madre Mother Alp.

Dwight Peck's personal website. You may not find this terribly rewarding unless you're included here, so this is a good time for casual and random browsers to turn back before they get too caught up in the sweep and majesty of the proceedings and can't let go. We were visiting the Veneto region north of Venice earlier this spring , and now we're back to see some more of what we missed farther south. This past February we were visiting Bassano del Grappa and learnt about the role of the 1,m peak of Monte Grappa itself in the horrors of the two World Wars. The ossuary and sanctuary for the dead young soldiers was convincingly recommended as a site worth exploring, but at that time of year the road to the summit was not safe.
