The cave I discovered as a kid is just a couple of miles from my home. Only later did I learn that the cave is not very old. The Nazi dug it in 1944-45. It was part of a project to create a military stronghold to protect the retreat of German troops crossing the valley while going back to Germany. Luckily, it was never used because of the sudden capitulation of the Italian front in late April 1945.
