This Monument, in memory of The Battle of Monte Cassino, by the Polish sculptor Gustaw Zemła was unveiled on May 18, 1999, exactly 55 years after the event. The Battle of Monte Cassino was actually a series of four intense and sometimes controversial battles that took place between January 20 and May 18, 1944, culminating at a 1,300-year-old Benedictine monastery on the top of the 1,100 metre Monte Cassino in southern Italy.
