Collina Zane E. Carlson

Address: 14043 Castelnuovo Belbo AT, Italia

In the autumn of 1944 there were days marked by hard armed clashes and the blood of partisans and civilians.

In the course of air cover operations, an American fighter conducted by Captain Carlson Zane Elwood, was shot down by the German anti-aircraft and crashed on a nearby hill.

Today, on the crash site, on the first outskirts of the town, following a rural road that goes into dense vineyards, there is a simple but suggestive memorial, with a wonderful panorama on the UNESCO hills, in memory of the sacrifice of the young aviator.
