Click here for The Observatory of the King and Roman Column

Perfectly preserved, the Observatory is located at Presa XV of Montello; this bunker was built over long slits in order to observe the movements of the troops during the Great War; battles on the River Piave front, as well as the entire field of action of the XXII Army Corps.

From this place Vittorio Emanuele III witnessed the start of the Vittorio Veneto Battle between the Italian and the Austro-Hungarian Army which took place in October 1918 and led to the Armistice on November 4th. To celebrate this event, in 1932 an ancient Roman Column was placed on its lawn, to establish an ideal bond between this place and the Rome of the Caesars, of which Fascism proclaimed itself to be its heir.
