In order to compensate a bit for the patriarchal system, I first show a picture of my grandmother and her Pederzini relatives in her younger years:
Town of the Provincia autonoma di Trento in the Regione autonoma Trentino-Alto Adige. Rovereto (in German: Rofreit)
lies in the Lagarina valley, on the Leno River near its junction with the Adige, south of Trento on the Brenner-Verona railway.
It was ruled by the Castelbarco family from about 1300, then by Venice (1416-1509) and Austria (1509-1918).
The 14th-century castle, once a Roman fortress, is now a war museum with the most extensive collection of documents
related to World War I. The Campana dei Caduti (Bell of the Fallen, also Maria Dolens), which can be seen from the
top of the castle, was made in 1924 from melted-down cannons of 19 nations involved in World War I and is rung daily
to remember those who were killed during the war(s). It weights 114 tons, and is the heaviest bell in the world that is still rung.
Since 1965, after a restoration, the two inscriptions on the bell read:
Dormite in umbra noctis laetamini in lumine christi, dum aere iungo populos et vestras laudes celebro.
Nulla e perduto con la pace, tutto puo essere perduto con la guerra (Pope Pius XII).
