Atlas Obscura Monumento ai Lupi di Toscana

The “Lupi di Toscana” (“Wolves of Tuscany”) brigade was an infantry division composed of two regiments of the Italian Army. Active since 1862, the Tuscany division became known as the “wolves” in 1915 during World War I. The name was first used to refer to the brigade by the enemy Austrian army.

Between 1916 and 1917, the division was active on the Asiago Plateau front, and then most notably, on the mountains of the Karst frontline around Trieste. They arrived in the spring of 1917 during the Tenth Battle of the Isonzo. In this area, the brigade captured Mount Sabotino and the Dosso Faiti hill. The brigade was also active during World War II and dissolved in 1943.
