The Tempio Ossario ai Caduti d'Italia is a church built in 1931 in Udine, in north-eastern Italy. The architects who realised the project are Limongelli and Gino Valle.

The building[edit]

In front of the facade there are four sculptures: a soldier of the navy, one of the air force, one of the land army and one of the Alpini. 25000 Italian soldiers dead during the First World War are buried in the walls of the church's chapels and of the crypt, which is the biggest in Italy.
