During the Second World War, the province of Bologna witnessed a particularly bloody event: the massacre of Marzabotto. To preserve the memory of such a historic event an application about the slaughtering area was made and was connected to a database.

The terrain model can be viewed as it appears today or in a version that uses a series of aerial photographs taken in 1944 by the RAF. The model is connected to the web database that can be queried through significant points organized chronologically and by topic (places of the massacres, actions of Red Star Brigade and war events).
