This monument is dedicated to a specific child but also to all the innocent fallen of the wars. Angelita was a girl found under the rubble of her house and saved by a nurse. But fate had called her and both the child and the nurse perished under successive bombings.

A famous song was dedicated to them in the 1960s with the name Angelita di Anzio.
