Campo 78 - WWII POW Camp 9 May 2019 0930
« on: May 01, 2019, 01:53:42 PM »
Campo 78, also known as Prigione di Guerra 78 ? is an Italian, former prisoner of war camp located at Fonte d?Amore, just outside the town of Sulmona in the Abruzzo region of central Italy. It was in use during both World Wars and during WWII it held as many as 3,000 British & Commonwealth servicemen ? many of whom had been captured during the North African campaigns. In 2014, a local nonprofit association ?Una Fondazione Per Il Morrone? was established to organize visits to the area which otherwise is not open to the public.

In collaboration with the Fondazione, a private visit to Campo 78 is scheduled Thursday, 9 May 2019 at  0930. We have arranged for a two-hour private tour with an English-speaking guide. A donation is highly encouraged. Ours hosts want to know the size of the group for this tour so, if you could be so kind, contact me if you plan to attend. I can also answer or pass on your questions about this exciting and informative visit especially arranged for the anglophone community. GRAZIE!!
