The Italian War History Museum

In the castle of Rovereto, memories of the Venetian rule and of the Great War

Inaugurated in 1921, the Museo Storico Italiano della Guerra is one of the major ones devoted to the First World War.

There are two exhibiting routes: the first one, from the 19th century to the Great War, documents war techniques and soldiers’ equipment, but also the huge transformations that the world experienced at the time: a rich and often moving collection of objects and photographs of trenches, propaganda material and testimonies of soldiers and civilians.

In the air raid shelter of the Second World War you can see the Great War artillery, with dozens of Italian, Austro-Hungarian, German and English pieces, including bombards, mortars, howitzers and cannons.

Now open are also the Castle sectors built by the Venetians in the period straddling the 15th and 16th century.
This second and new exhibiting route takes you to the towers and tunnels, to the embankment and to dozens of gun ports on the walls. In the Marino and Malipiero towers is displayed a collection of modern age weapons (16th – 18th century): armours, cold steel, firearms, duelling and hunting weapons.
