Military District Headquarters, City of Campobasso

This is building where young men were required to report for national service if their villages were in the Province of Molise (Region of Abruzzo e Molise), later Province of Campobasso (Region of Molise).  Giovanni Valente would have reported here in 1908 when he was twenty years old, to serve in the Italian Army as an infantryman.
