[automatically translated] On 4 November 1921 he was deposed, with full honors, the remains of an unknown soldier in the Vault of the Patria del Vittoriano in Rome, in eternal memory for posterity the heroic sacrifice made for the salvation of the Fatherland. From that moment, in every Italian piazza they were built monuments and monuments dedicated to the fallen. On places of conflict, began a systematic reclamation of the many war cemeteries behind the trenches and in the countries in the rear and in order to honor the fallen soldiers million, were made in almost all the countries involved in the conflict, different shapes and places of remembrance (Cemeteries and Shrines, Kaiser Wilhelm memorial Parks, Heroes Woods) share the strong presence of symbolic elements of the Unknown Soldier civil liturgy. These monuments are presented as real plant architectures, because the plants almost always present, are structural part of the monument itself, which then existed in the thinking of those who designed it, and not a simple ornament kit. From these considerations, it was carried out a census of the Gardens of Remembrance to the Fallen in the territory of the Madonie surrounding areas, paying particular attention to the relationship between monuments and places.
