The unifying theme of the museum
The unifying theme of the museum is embodied in journal excerpts that provide a window into the souls of those who fought here. Here you will find both historical information and emotions evoked by the memories and inner baggage of the people who experienced the war first hand. You will come out enriched and take with you a wealth of values and a better understanding of history from this unique point of view.The heart of the museum centers around a revisiting of a military trench and a tunnel exhibit that underscores the reality of war as it played out on these front lines—life in the camps, how soldiers were cared for in the field, the general hardship, and the battle against nature. Connections will also be made with modern day here on Marmolada, now an integral part of the World Heritage Dolomites.
