Statue of the Unknown Soldier

Statue of the Unknown Soldier

The Statue of the Unknown Soldier that stands at the central square of Lamia, was painted by the sculptors Perantini and Tombo in Florence. It is a work that glorifies every soldier who participated in the Balkan wars, but also in the Asia Minor and the Greek-Italian war. It is a monument-symbol that gives breath to all the soldiers who died and their heaps were not recognized. It is a collective effort to promote heroism and self-sacrifice. Personal interests have fallen in the face of the interest of the country. The memory of soldiers who have fallen on the battlefield must be connected with the glory and courtesy of their soul.
