My name is Aurelio Baruzzi, born in Lugo, but honorary citizen of Gorizia. On August 8, 1916, I was a young subordinate of the 28th infantry regiment of Glorious Brigata Pavia. With the enthusiasm and unconsciousness of my age (19), I stepped down from Mount Calvary, led the soldiers to the conquest of the fort of the Piedimonte railway underpass and beyond the Isonzo in Gorizia. I hoisted my Italian flag on the the train station and stayed up all night on guard. For this reason, and other weapon incidents, I was awarded a gold medal for military value. I went back to my dear and beautiful adopted city. I've always wondered where my tricolour has gone ... the one that I was waving on the station on that hot summer morning of August 9, 1916.
