Civezzano Upper Roadblock

[ Soprintendenza per i beni culturali]

The Civezzano “Obere Strassensperre” was a wall construction placed on present day state road 17 between Civezzano and Cognola. It had only one level, with placements for riflemen and machine-gunners aimed at the road and 13 loopholes for riflemen on the defence side (fronte di gola)
Made of squared limestone and remodernised in 1914, the fort became a powder magazine and was ultimately dismissed by the Italian Military Property Office.
