Most of the monuments and statues in this town are those of Saints. There are two giving remembrance to Italy's war dead.

In one piazza is a monument of a soldier with names of those who died in WW's 1 and 2. The second monument is a tribute remembering the 16 Italian soldiers who died in a suicide bombing in Nasiriyah, Iraq. None of those dead were from this town. All of Italy was in mourning for days as the television broadcast both their homecoming and state funerals.
