Tavolicci is a village in the municipality of Verghereto located at 825 meters above sea level. Here, in 1944, a team of Italian-German police officers consumed a terrible massacre: 64 civilians were killed, of whom 19 were children. The military, to leave no traces, set fire to the spaces where the massacre was consumed. The population of Tavolicci was a stranger to the Resistance movement, but it was the intention of the Nazi-Fascists to destroy everything that bordered the Gothic Line, an area where the partisans were operating.
Today, on the site of the tragic event, there are two gravestones that show both the names and the age of the sixty-four victims and the text of the Memorial on the tragedy written by Don Giovanni Babini, parish priest, in 1945, of a fraction near Tavolicci.
