Italian Monument

Starting from the Villainous square, through Rizospaston road, the pathtowards Lassi on top of the hill is a monument that reflects the recent history of Kefalonia. This is the monument built in honour of the Italians who were executed by Germans towards the end of the 2nd world war. The Italians had arrived in 1941 to occupy the island after the collapse of the Greek front. The Italians were executed after the fall of Italy to the allied forces. The Germans promised that they could return home unharmed, but instead they rounded up all the troops that were stationed on the islands and shot them all, killing over 10,000 men on Kefalonia and Ithaca alone. Today the monument dominates reminiscent to the old and young of how many may suffer due to war.
