The exhibition, promoted by "Istituto Culturale Ladino", the association "Sul fronte dei ricordi" and the municipality of Moena, is a treasure trove of relics that illustrate the Austro-Russian front, the war on Fassa’s Dolomites and its impact on local people.

The exhibition, held on three floors for a total area of about 500 sqm, is structured in four thematic sections: Galicia 1914, The trench, Dolomites 1915, and War to the War. Scenic dioramas, showcases, panels, vintage photographs, blow ups, original audios and videos, recreations of sheltered walkways, outposts, placements, and caves help us enter the heart of the Great War, seeing the world men in uniform actually lived in first-hand: Italians, Austrians, Russians, Hungarians, Bosnians, Germans, on opposite and far fronts, from the Dolomites to Galicia.

Every year, moreover, a new temporary section is set up, dedicated to a specific subject matter. The exhibition is accessible to the disabled.
