Monte Serrasiccia

The highest point defended by the Brazilian forces

Monte Serrasiccia, Fanano (Mo) | 44.18051 E - 10.82007 N |

In his memoires, Brazilian General João Batista Mascarenhas de Moraes, Commander in Chief of the FEB (Força Expedicionária Brasileira), states that Monte Serrassiccia was the highest point defended by the Brazilian troops. Early in March 1945, the Brazilian forces relieved the American mountain troops and took over the defence of this position together with Armando’s partisans. The Germans attacked Monte Serrassiccia several times during March 1945 and a number of Brazilian troops were wounded, while a partisan was killed on Monte Cappel Buso.

A monument to the Brazilian troops who defended the mountain was erected in 2003.
