On January 4, 1952, Don Antonio Rossaro, our founder, the creator of the Bell of the Fallen which was cast on 30 October, 1924 with the bronze of the cannons offered by the nations participating in the First World War, died in Rovereto. Here are two vintage photos that portray him at work and next to the universal symbol of Peace.
