294 Capanno Tassoni
Forestry barracks of 1930, on 22 May 1944 a battle took place between partisans and Nazi-fascists.
On 16 May the partisans had occupied Fanano, disarming the garrison and capturing some fascists, as well as setting the town hall and the headquarters of the fascists on fire.
During the night, the allies, deceived by the fires of the country, parachuted their supplies into the valley floor, forcing the partisans to make a risky recovery: attacked by the Germans, two patriots died, while the others managed to disengage towards Ospitale after blowing up a bridge along the Street.
A few days later, a column of about a hundred Nazi-fascists who had come up from the Tuscan side attacked the formation of Otello Cavalieri “Fulmine” who had taken refuge in Capanna Tassoni.
A furious fight broke out which, after four hours, forced the attackers to retreat, also due to the arrival of reinforcements from the other partisan formations in the area.
The next day an exchange of prisoners was scheduled, but the partisans, having discovered that the fascists had already shot the captured patriots, put their 5 fascist prisoners into arms..
