Basovizza Heroes monument granted cultural significance status

A memorial site in Italy’s Basovizza dedicated to four Slovenian victims of Fascism executed in September 1930, known as the Basovizza Heroes, has been granted a status of cultural importance by Italian regional authorities, the Trieste-based Primorski Dnevnik reported on Wednesday.

By doing this, the Friuli Venezia Giulia region has laid the groundwork for the memorial to become a monument of national importance in Italy in the future. The granting of the status was welcomed by President Borut Pahor and the umbrella organisations of the Slovenian minority in Italy.
