Rubble from WWII bombings

On 7 June 1944, the war passed through Pitigliano and the town, along with the provincial capital, Grosseto, was bombed by the allied forces. In Pitigliano, 78 people died.

In memory of the day, a monument was commissioned, but during its construction, builders discovered ancient tunnels and cisterns, probably of Etruscan-Roman origin, underneath the rubble.

The area has been preserved behind glass, so that visitors can now see the remains of the bombings, as well as the ancient tunnels and underground cellars.
