Gambatesa - Marks left by the German Army

"During the Second World War the German Army used the present Post Office building, which is just in front of La Villa (Gambatesa's municipal park), for their headquarters in Gambatesa.  You can still see the signs they drew on the walls inside giving directions to the rooms they used."  [Civilians killed in Gambatesa during WW2]

Outside the Germans used blue arrows for directions.  These arrows were neatly drawn, not in the careless way that Italians or French would draw them.

The post office is in the Palazzo Rotondo, which is to the east of Largo [della] Fontana on the map.
