Located on Piazza della Vittoria (Victory Square) in the capital of Marca, is the Monumento Ai Caduti Di Tutte le Guerre- Monument to the Fallen of All Wars. The imposing monument is the work of the Italian sculptor and painter Arturo Stagliano and was created between 1926 and 1931.

The monument came under threat in 1941 due to the recovery of bronze for armaments as many Italian squares had seen the removal of such works. This architectural sculpture is over 15 metres high and features 16 bronze statues representing comrades in arms and grieving mothers who carry the fallen in the Temple of Glory, which is symbolised by the marble columns.
