Fort Strino

One of the symbols of a terrible conflict fought at high altitude

Among the most interesting relics collected in the museum are the winter uniforms worn by Italian, Austrian and German soldiers

It was the so called White War: whole army units found themselves fighting in areas that until then had been the exclusive realm of eagles and chamois. An epic fight carried out in tunnels dug under glaciers, with deadly snowslides and clashes on the peaks, evoked in the permanent exhibition inside Fort Strino.

The showcases display relics and memorabilia of the Great War from private collections, like the winter uniforms of Italian, Austrian and German soldiers.

This is the first one of the forts built in upper Val Vermiglio by the Austrians between 1860 and 1861. Located at 1538 m above sea level, it was meant to block the access to Val di Sole. The Fort hosts contemporary art exhibitions every year, and in the summer months organises shows and special evenings centred on the theme of the Great War.
