Wars destroy

Every war primarily destroys many lives, divides families, destroys homes. It does not even spare cultural heritage. And unfortunately, too many military conflicts are also deliberately directed against it.

Preventive protection of cultural heritage during the First World War:

  • preventive protection of monuments and immovable heritage with sandbags and wooden structures,
  • collection of movable heritage and its evacuation.
Before the destruction, the Italians withdrew their movable heritage to the cities of Padua, Vicenza, Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Rovigo and Rome, and the Austrians to Ljubljana, Graz and Vienna.
