Base Thunder

Former NATO missile base, currently a one-of-a-kind museum in Europe

At Malga Zonta an impressive testimony to the Cold War and the atomic risk

Between 1966 and 1977 the Passo Coe – Monte Toraro missile base was active in Malga Zonta, at 1543 m altitude; this was one of the twelve bases that were set up by NATO in the Italian North-East area between the ‘60s and the ‘90s of last century to oppose the Warsaw Pact ones.

Here, today, Base Tuono tells us about the nuclear risk we ran during the Cold War. 

When the former launch area was finally demolished and the clearance and re-naturalization of the area began, the  Town of Folgaria decided to preserve one of the three launch areas, the Alpha one, for educational, historical and cultural purposes.
Thanks to the participation of the Autonomous Province of Trento, the cultural support of the Museo Storico del Trentino and the collaboration of the Italian Air Force, after the hangar, bunker, radar and section panel were restored, Base Tuono, as it was called in military communications of the time, was finally born.

 

OPENING HOURS 2020

BaseTuono is open from June 2nd. For the whole month of June the opening hours are: 10.30-12.30 and 14.00-17.00
