1 Monte Soratte, 691m


Location: Civita Castellana      by: Giuseppe Marzulli
Area: Italy      Date: 15 April 2017

Mount Soratte is a mountain in Lazio, 45 Km north of Rome.
It is not very high, only 691 meters, but it is an isolated mountain in the plain and its shape and its position, in the middle of the Tiber valley, have always stimulated curiosity.
Inside, during the fascist period, numerous galleries were excavated and during the Cold War this galleries were converted to host the Italian government's anti-atomic bunker.
Fortunately, in the Cold War they have never been used.


This is gorgeouse and more green than my riddle. Lets see ....

I did google I have to admit. I found out the mountain is the key to the picture. It has to be something special - I was sure about it, I know you ;-)

I believe we are in the middle of Italy, the mountain (Monte .....e) was already named by Roman writers ...

Do you know what was inside the mountain during the cold war?

Ok. But during the Cold War, in the event of a nuclear attack on Italy, the Italian government would have to take refuge in the bunkers built under that mountain.
