Landing field

Operation Nembo

Lago Murato, Frassinoro (Mo) | 44.29679 E - 10.56495 N |

During the period of the Liberated Zone in summer 1944, the partisans built a landing field for reconnaissance aircraft at Frassinoro. A parachute battalion of the CIL (Italian Liberation Corps), belonging to the 185th Nembo Regiment, an officer from which had already been parachuted into the area on 26 July, was also supposed to land there on the night of 2 August. However, the start of the German search and round-up operation forced this plan to be abandoned.
