Let's hope we don't have a head wind.
Blockhaus - an interesting name. Seems a little out of place. From the German military term for an isolated fortress, the fortress was built in 1860. My knowledge of Italian history is very sketchy, I know that big chunks of the North were part of the Hapsburg Empire, but Blockhaus is firmly in the state of Naples. So why the use of the German term? Answers on a postcard please...
edit: it would appear that it was fashionable at the time for Italian military types to hold Austro-Hungarian military terms, training, tactics as the gold standard to which they aspired. Hence the use of the German term Block Haus.
