National Historical Museum of the Alpine Troops

A fascinating place in Trento where you can go through the epic deeds of the Alpine Troops (Alpini)

National Historical Museum of the Alpine Troops

Humble and generous, indomitable and helpful, the Alpini are among the best loved soldiers in Italy, as shown every year by their grand gatherings, and they are known all over the world for their humanity and altruism, even in the most dramatic circumstances.

Personal belongings, weapons, photographs, documents are the heart of the Museo Nazionale Storico degli Alpini, on the Doss di Trento (called the “wart” due to its shape), converted from a former Austrian powder-keg.           
The Museum came about thanks to an initiative of the Legione Trentina, the Association of war volunteers. It was inaugurated in 1958 on the 40th anniversary of the peace proclamation following World War I.

Outside are 29 memorial stones, symbolizing the Alpine regiments; all around, artillery pieces.

Inside, the frescoes painted by Colonel Paolo Caccia Dominioni, legendary hero of El Alamein and the Resistance. In the eight side niches are relics, weapons, medals and photos telling the story of the Alpine soldiers, from battles to humanitarian aid to people in emergencies.

 

Currently closed for renovations. You can visit an exhibition about the history of the Alpini in Torre Vanga, Trento.
