The war events of 1943 - 1944 in Tivoli

In 1943 the population of Tivoli was directly involved in the war actions. After the German occupation of the 8 September armistice, numerous air raids by the allies took place, as of December 9, 1943.
Bombardments, break-ups and strafe on the city and the municipal territory followed for months, especially on January 20 and February 24, 1944, culminating in the fatal morning of May 26, 1944, in two close missions that caused 325 deaths, many injured, and destruction of a large portion of the historic center.
In the following days, other air raids and cannonades of the Allies approaching the city caused further casualties and damage. To all this was added, especially on June 6, 1944, the killing by German soldiers in retreat of civilians who had taken refuge in the Tiburtine campaigns after the bombings of May 26. Lastly, on 7 June, the allied troops entered an exhausted and practically deserted Tivoli.
The war events of December 1943-June 1944 caused, according to an official statistic of the Municipality dating back to 1955, well over 400 civilian victims.
