Tempio ossario dei Caduti d'Italia being used as partisan hideout

Description

During a winter’s night, in the street outside a church, two Alpini, a priest and another figure in the shadows are present. One of the soldiers is running away whilst the other soldier is clutching four rifles in his arms. Lights are on inside the church and the figure in the shadows is banging on the door. The the priest looks on, his hands held in prayer.

Inscriptions read “205”; signed by the author; caption reads “GENNAIO 1945. UDINE Il tempio ossario centro della resistenza partigiana dei Verdi dell’Osoppo, 2 preti, Don Albino e Don Giorgio, hanno vissuto qui per tanti mesi, in mezzo ad un arsenale di armi, e viveri, cominciarono con l’ospitare un partigiano di Colugna, ucciso poi dai tedeschi. Dì Renato Del Din, primo caduto dell’Osoppo, sotto la cupola aveva organizzato, un laboratorio segreto, da dove partivano i materiali, per le formazioni in montagna. Una radio trasmittente quella del gruppo del maggiore inglese Niconlson [Nicholson], funzionava spesso senza tante precauzioni. Il gruppo “Baracca” e il Comando della piazza, si stabilirono quasi in permanenza al tempio, i confessionali, le pedane dell’organo, l’organo stesso erano piene di armi”.
