At Vico Equense

Now war memorials should be visited and given due respect but are also about the community they serve and I think should never become just “that place to visit” once a year.

And to that end they should always be somewhere prominent, be looked after and remain a place which continues to be part of the village or town where they stand.

This one on the Corso Fiangieri in Vico Equense and faces on to busy road but looks out across the Bay of Sorrento and is located in a small park with benches, and a water fountain, making it a perfect place to reflect on those who participated in the wars Italy fought.

Some of those recorded on the memorial may well have sailed from the nearby port while many more will have known the streets and the main piazza just round the corner.

And when we visited a few days ago the municipal workers were hard at work giving the garden a fresh make over.
