Closed for repairs, after the earthquacke of 2012.

Built to commemorate those who fell in World War I and dedicated to St. Joseph, this monument was designed by the Modena architect Domenico Barbanti, with the cooperation of Achille Casanova. The inauguration was on 1929, while the first stone was laid on December 8, 1923 in the presence of King Vittorio Emanuele III and the Archbishop Natale Bruni, benefactor who conceived the monument. His funeral chapel, with medallion sculpted by Giuseppe Graziosi, is located to the right of the entrance. The names of the 7300 citizens of Modena who fell during the First World War are sculpted in the crypt, on the pilasters and on the walls.
