In collaboration with the Rudolf Stolz Museum, Sesto (BZ)
Between 1915 and 1916, the battalion of the Standschützen of Bolzano was stationed on the front above Riva del Garda. Two brothers, Albert and Rudolf Stolz, were drafted into the company as war artists.
From this experience arose a cycle of thirty drawings and paintings of great artistic value that document the daily life of life at the front. Trenches, patrols, the moving of artillery, shooting practice and everyday scenes were first sketched and then completed with precision in watercolour, gouache, pencil or pastel.
