Small findings from the Great War on the Marmolada
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.
This museum showcases a small yet interesting private collection focussed on the Great War fought in the Marmolada. It is housed in a building next to the Alla Seggiovia mountain-hut near the artificial basin of Fedaia, on the Pass bearing its name (the cable car for Pian dei Fiacconi on the Marmolada glacier sets off from here). The items are displayed in two rooms and have been collected by the De Bernardin family of Rocca Pietore.
Over the years, the family has recovered numerous different objects dating back to the First World War, including binoculars, helmets, a field-kitchen, uniforms, medals pins and coins. They have resulted from searching the battle fields first hand, and from exchanges with other collectors.
The collection is completed by some original films, photographs, postcards and by one of the most supplied specialized book-shops in Italy.
TIMETABLES: from mid-May to September every day 10 am-12.30 and 2 pm-5.30 pm; Closed on Tuesday.
