Abstract

The article traces the main steps of a research realized during the centenary of the First World War, intended to determine the dimensions of the so-called Ceri del Col di Lana (literally the Candles of Gubbio), reproductions of the Ceri di Gubbio (literally the Candles of Gubbio) made on the occasion of the unusual Festa dei Ceri (literally the Feast of the Candles) held on May 15th 1917 on the southeastern side of the front, where the Eugubino infantrymen of the 51° Infantry Regiment of the Alpi Brigade were deployed. The survey drawings, realized from a series of old-timey photos and based on a restitution procedure on the basis of a metric clue, represented the technical document that has made it possible to transmit the dimensional memory and to create three wooden replicas. These replicas were used during the commemoration of the first centenary of the race and then exhibited inside the church of the Sacrario Militare of Pian di Salesei (Belluno). An experience that claims the fundamental role of deep knowledge in the identification of the historical and artistic heritage which involved the synergistic participation of citizens, artisans and academics.
