The Cave of Basovizza is located in the suburb of Trieste. The so-called "Cave of Basovizza" is originally a mine shaft: it became, however, in May 1945 a place of executions for prisoners, soldiers, policemen and civilians, by Tito's communist partisans. The victims destined to be plunged into the abyss of Basovizza, were taken into the homes of Trieste, during the 40 days of Yugoslav occupation of the city. On February 10, 2007 was solemnly inaugurated the new structure of the Shrine of Basovizza. The "Well of" Basovizza Mine is not only a place of sacrifice of so many innocent victims, but also the figure and symbol of all the tragedies that have marked the story of the east side to the end of World War II. At the Shrine margin was expected one dedicated to the Documentation Center space.
