Festa Sons of Italy Piave Fiume Lodge, 1975
View Full Item
The Watertown Sons of Italy Lodge Piave Fiume was founded in 1920 by Salvatore Cesareo, Antonio Abbondanzio and Michele Pane along with a group of 20 other Italian immigrants living in Watertown, Massachusetts. The name Piave Fiume was given to the lodge by the founders who participated in a great battle, which took place at the River Piave, a river in northern Italy. In 1918, during World War I, it was the scene of Battle of the Piave River, the last major Austria-Hungarian attack on the Italian Front, which failed after costing Austria-Hungary nearly 200,000 casualties. The Battle of the Piave was the decisive battle of World War I on the Italian Front. The river is thus called in Italy 'Fiume Sacro alla Patria' (Sacred River of the Homeland).
