Commemorative Monument for the 100th Anniversary of the Death of Francesco Baracca

  On 12 July, in Casarsa della Delizia (near Pordenone), a series of events were held to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Francesco Baracca, a pioneer of combat flight and the main Italian Ace in the Great War. The celebrations began in the morning with the inauguration of a dedicated sculpture and the twinning with the 2nd Piedmont Cavalry Regiment, a unit in which Baracca served. The marble work of art was designed and developed with the intention of creating a monument that could recall the figure of the Ace and the historical context in which he served. The work was made with materials that guaranteed durability and the image of solidity; a combination of stainless steel and Trani natural stone was chosen. For the first material type EN 1.4301 (AISI 304) was selected, in a 1 mm thick sheet with a bright finish (2R) and a bar in 5 mm diameter.

The Stainless steel was supplied by: Nord Est Metalli Srl – I-33078 San Vito al Tagliamento PN – Via Clauzetto 26 – Tel. +39 0434 85236 – / Photographs: © Luckyplane –
