Borgo San Lorenzo was liberated on September 11, 1944. Days later, Allies would break through the Gothic Line in a series of crucial battles fought in the mountains to the north. This photograph shows locals returning to Borgo with their belongings after the liberation via a Bailey bridge constructed over the Sieve river, alongside soldiers on motorbikes. From the archive of Mugello writer and folklorist Tebaldo Lorini, this photo is featured on the cover of his book Il Podere di Lutiano.
