Mementoes, uniforms, and documents from the Risorgimento period occupy rooms in the museum, followed by a fascinating record of the city during World War II and the activities of local Resistance fighters. The old newspapers provide hours of interest for anyone wanting to know more...More

A small museum with nothing explained in English. One of the benefits of visiting is to see the inside courtyard to Sociedad with those blank walls that face the streets in Italian towns. Use a myfe card.

The Risorgimento, meaning the reunification of Italy in the middle 1800's, and the world wars of the 20th century are depicted here from the experiences and the perspective of the local population. There are a lot of interesting original documents to peruse as well.
