Since that time a new church was built about 1935 by the residents of Falcade since most of them were masons or builders, across the piazza is a hotel, restaurant owned by Scola whose mother was Murer. In front of the new church is a monument to those soldiers who died in WW1 and WW2 out of about 35 names the name Ganz appears about 10 or 12 times looks like most of the Ganz young from Falcade died in the First World War. A few more died in ww2. My grandfather moved his family to Salce Belluno about 1900.
