    English war cemetery

    Coriano

    It is one of the biggest Italian Foreign Cemetery (1939 deads). It is considered a garden-cemetery because of the several flowers that are present in it. The construction of this cemetery is the dramatic result of the "Gothic Line" breaking down, that ended the 2nd World War.

    Commonwealth Authorities take care directly of the cemetery.

    Historical notes:
    Coriano Ridge was the last important obstacle blocking the Alliedadvance in the Adriatic sector in the autumn of 1944. Its capture was the key to Rimini and eventually to the River Po. German airborne troops  and tank squadrons resisted all attack between 4 and 12 September 1944 when the Eighth Army renewed its attack. This attack took the Ridge, but marked the beginning of a week of the heaviest fighting since Cassino in May, with the Eighth Army losing daily some 150 killed. The cemetery was made in April 1945 from graves brought in from the surrounding battelfields.
