Malatesta & Montefeltro

Fragheto

This quiet village has not forgotten its past; a massacre took place here when German soldiers struck with unprecedented violence on 7 April 1944 murdering local women and children and burning their houses. The reason for this retaliation was presumed hospitality given to partisans or failure to report their presence. In memory of the event an association Il Borgo della Pace (The Village of Peace) was founded here in 2004 and Casteldelci was awarded an Italian Medal for Civil Merit for this reason.
