Itineraries : The Great War

During the First World War the Friuli Venezia Giulia region was, for its border strategic position, one of the most important location for the battles between the Italians, deployed at the front of the Carnia area, and the Austrians. The memory of such a tragic event is preserved in several museums of the region which celebrate, with their collections, the herpes and memories of those historical events. This itinerary, even more evocative thanks to all these commemorative museums, artillery posts, routes with galleries and communication trenches open to visits, is made up of a series of exhibitions displaying weapons, uniforms, historical relics and vestiges of the protagonists of the battles. You will therefore have the opportunity to go over one of the most crucial event of the Italian history that deeply marked this land.
