Austro-Hungarian Forts Collection

Posten Spitz Verle

DESCRIPTION: The fort belongs to the fourth generation of fortifications built by Austro-Hungarian army in the Trentino region between 1904 and 1914 before the outbreak of the First World War. The forts were built in concrete together with hand-carved local stone and were positioned on the top of hills and mountains, to monitor the national boundary and block the advance of Italian military troops. Each forts, with casemate, rotating domes, corridors and underground passageways to smaller reinforced blocks, were often realized with their main body completely carved in the rock in order to be camouflaged and so that only the facade was visible from outside.
