The partisans shoot
On 25 August 1944, twenty-three men were taken prisoner in a search and round-up operation at Monzone (Pavullo nel Frignano) and, after being paraded through the streets of Pavullo, were transferred to Fanano. On 30 August, five partisans from Pavullo were taken to what is now the Fanano industrial estate and lined up on the edge of the escarpment, then shot. One managed to escape by throwing himself down the steep slope.
