Montese, Bronze Medal of Civil Merit, in the final phase of World War II was the northwest edge of the Gothic Line, the last German
defense against the advance of the allies in Italy. The Germans arrived in Montese at the end of the summer of 1944 from the front of Tuscany, where the
first defenses of the Gothic Line on the Giogo and Futa Pass had been broken by the attacks of the Fifth Army.
