I was wondering if you may know something. My family tells me there is a statue in Italy somewhere that honors the Italian men who died in WW2 with the name Marra. Could you tell me anything about it?





There is a town called Marra that is southeast of Parma, accessible by train and taxi, but I have found no reference to a memorial there—though it is common for towns throughout Europe to honor their local war dead.
