1949The U.S A. order 86,000 marble crosses for its dead soldiers

The last major order to the Ente for Lasa’s Marble was entered in 1949, when the American Battle Monument Commission ordered the production of 86,000 crosses and tombstones with the Star of David for the American soldiers who had died in Europe. The first order of 25,000 marble crosses was followed by others for 11,000 and 22,697 crosses in 1950.

When the processing had already begun, it was discovered that the "Ente’s” financial experts had made miscalculation errors because they had not consulted competent technicians.
