Pietro PEDRANZINI (9 October 1826 - 3 September 1903) Italian patriot, lieutenant of the National Guard and Municipal Secretary of Bormio (SO), Gold Medal for Military Valor "For having led the Zambelli column along the very difficult and dangerous pass of the Reit cut off the retreat to the Austrians and to have descended, first of all, on the postal road to intercept the pass to the fleeing and determine the surrender of 75 prisoners with very serious personal risk ", on 11 July 1866, at the height of the Third War of Independence Italian (June 20 - August 12, 1866). In the admired and affectionate emphasis of his fellow citizens, his heroic gesture is passed down as a completely solitary action in which, after climbing the Cima Reit for the passage that since then bears his name, he descended from the scree of Glandadura towards the road dello Stelvio playing the horn, firing his rifle and rolling the stones in a great fuss, frightening the Austrians who took refuge by locking themselves in the entrance hall of the Cantoniera. Intimated the surrender, he made them lay down their arms and brought them in columns and prisoners to Bormio. Detail of the photographic portrait from a simple stone installation in memory of his deeds, placed on a path in conjunction with the topographic indication Bormio / Forba (see whole in # 41086).
