90th anniversary, Retreat from Caporetto

This October will mark the 90th anniversary of the famously bloody battles of and retreat from Caporetto (now Kobarid, Slovenia) by the Italian army in WW 1. This was the backdrop for Hemingway's A FAREWELL TO ARMS>

Since I will be in Venice the week of the anniversary, I plan to drive to Kobarid for the day, see the sights, and visit the WW 1 museum there, which is supposed to be excellent. Does anybody know of any planned commemorations or ceremonies that will be taking place in Kobarid?
