Castelluccio di Moscheda, Montese (Mo) | 44.22759 E - 10.89777 N |

During spring 1944 the woodlands around the village of Castelluccio initially offered refuge to young men fleeing conscription, after which, in the summer, the Germans arrived and began to build the first secondary defences in the area of the Gothic Line. Between 30 September and 1 October 1944 Castelluccio was also caught up in the Ronchidoso massacre, when three young men, one of them a partisan, were killed.
