The first political commitment to Nordio is the realization of the House of the fighter and the simultaneous arrangement of the shrine dedicated to Guglielmo Oberdan. The design and construction of the building have various difficulties, perfectly resolved, including the positioning of the cell in which he was detained Oberdan, part of a former Habsburg barracks that you wanted to keep. The House of the fighter served as a museum and as a forum for Trieste sections of veterans' associations. In 1933 it was added 54m tower. Arches at street level and arches on the first floor, covered with white stone, respects the classical language.
