Brazzano/Bračan is a small village in the Municipality of Cormons/Krmin. Before World War I, Brazzano belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire; as its location was close to the border, it was quickly conquered by the Italians when the war broke out.
One part of the civil cemetery is still intended for World War I casualties. In the cemetery, there is a collective tomb with the remains of camp prisoners (iron crosses) and another collective tomb with 282 Austro-Hungarian soldiers, who were originally buried in Cormons/Krmin. A large pyramid-shaped monument with the inscription Freund und Feind, Im Tode vereint (Friend and Enemy, United in Death) is surrounded by crosses; big tombstones are lined along the wall.
