Analytical text:

The monument is constituted by a bronze bas-relief where a partisan reversed on the ground with the palm of his hand up, is portrayed. On the base of the cement structure and in its side two gravestones on which the epigraph devoted to the twenty-four martyrs of the "Fratelli Cervi" detachment appears, are fixed. The monument was a commission of the municipal administration of Vetto, of the partisan associations and of the ex-fighting and local arm association. The monument was planned and sculpted by the sculptor Giorgio Benevelli, while the author of the epigraph was Guerino Franzini. The unveiling is dated back to the 12 September 1982.
