Italy - Swastikas and the word "ovens" on stones in Pegorino valley

Two boys from Triuggio found Nazi swastikas in the valley of the Rio Pegorino during a walk in the countryside with their dogs.

The symbols had been drawn with spray cans on several boulders in the river bed a few steps from a couple of bivouacs where the remains of two bonfires were clearly visible.

In the middle of the symbols there is also an inscription “Ovens” (Forni) with an arrow right in the direction of the points where the fire was lit. The find, which is located in an area on the border between Casatenovo and Correzzana, was reported to the competent police forces.
