Monte Tobbio

Monte Tobbio (in Ligurian Monte Tuggiu) is a 1092 metres high mountain of the Apennines, located in the Italian region of Piedmont.

On the summit stands a little church dedicated to Our Lady of Caravaggio. It was built in 1892 and rebuilt after severe damages occurred during the world War II.[1]

In 1944's spring a group of Italian partisans were surrounded by fascist and nazi troops on mount Tobbio. After a fight some of them managed to break the blockade while some others, after being captured, were transported near the Benedicta Abbey and executed by firing squads on April the 7th 1944.[2]
