"The Rebels on the Mountain - The Last Night of Montelupo" is a standalone Live Action Role-Playing (larp) event, taking place at Villaggio delle Stelle (Lusernetta, Turin) in two sessions in September 2024.

"The Rebels on the Mountain," produced in 2015, was the first historical larp of Terre Spezzate, and finally, after nine years, it is back!





The play experience will focus on the difficult situation of Montelupo, a fictional mountain village in the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, during the complicated Nazi-Fascist occupation of the Italian territory in the fall of 1944.

After almost ten years from the first runs, Terre Spezzate presents again its first purely historical event: "The Rebels on the Mountain," a larp openly inspired by the dramatic events that occurred in the Marzabotto and Monte Sole area between September 29 and October 4, 1944.

Many of the characters in the event are modeled on historical figures from the Resistance period.

The event is produced by a collective of authors with a clear anti-fascist, anti-Nazi, and anti-totalitarian stance.

The larp includes about 65 Italian-speaking characters, and 5 English-speaking characters, reserved for International players. See all International characters of this larp for an individual description of the characters available for English-speaking players.
