Knowing the history of the army from its origins to the present day enables us to better understand the importance of defending our territory, our citizens and our national identity. Reliving the past enables us to better shape our future, and knowledge of history has the advantage of confronting us with realities that have existed and can be reproduced as we see from current events in Europe.
Every people, even if protected by treaties, can only rely on itself. Its moral preparedness and moral strength constitute the best national protection.
On this theme, Fort Mondascia is organising a TRYADE of Lectures on our Army and its importance for the existence of our country.
