ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks.
We therefore ask you to contact the service managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.
The relics and documents on display at the Museo Garibaldino of Bezzecca narrate one of the most famous episodes in Italian history. Here Garibaldi complied with his orders, pronouncing his famous motto "I obey" to General La Marmora, and committing - against his will - to leaving Trentino to the Austrians.
Documents and artefacts from the victorious battle fought by Garibaldi's troops against the Austrians during the Third Italian War of Independence (21 July 1866) are on display here. A section of the museum is dedicated to the First World War, since the area was the also theatre of the trench war between the Italian artillery and the Austro-Hungarian army.
June-September from Wednesday to Sunday 10.00-13.00. Other periods on request.
Free entry. Guided visits during the summer.
