Costrignano, Palagano (Mo) | 44.36398 E - 10.66936 N |

Costrignano is a village near Palagano. Standing between Susano and Monchio, it was caught up in the massacre. After the search and round-up in summer 1944, it became the base of the brigade the same name, led by Filippo Papa. In mid September this formation was involved in the battle of Palaveggio, where several of its members were killed. Due to its strategic position, the village was involved in all the search and round-up operations in 1945. In early April it was the site of major combat involving the Italia and Dragone Brigades.

The village contains a Parco dei Caduti to commemorate the fallen, with a monument to the Costrignano Brigade.
