The museum of the Battle of Vittorio Veneto
To remember the Great War, one hundred years after its end, you can visit the museum of the Battle of Vittorio Veneto.
The museum is dedicated to the last armed conflict between Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire, which was fought between 24 October and 4 November 1918 and marked the Italian victory over the Austro-Hungarian Army. The battle was fought in the area between the river Piave, Mount Grappa, the regions of Trentino and Friuli, a few months after the failed Austrian offensive of June 1918.
The Museum of the Battle of Vittorio Veneto is located in the town of Ceneda, in the municipality of Vittorio Veneto, and is the result of the donation of the personal collection of the soldier Luigi Marson (knight of Vittorio Veneto) made up of objects, artifacts and documents collected in the battlefields and the surrounding areas. Since 1938, the year of its foundation, the museum has been considerably enlarged with acquisitions of findings and documents and above all donations by the many witnesses of this epochal event, or by their heirs.
The first section of the museum, on the ground floor, is dedicated to life in the trench presented with a series of immersive and engaging visual design effects; the two central rooms on the first floor are dedicated to the narration of life during the Austrian occupation, showing its multilingualism, plundering, devastation and destruction of places and symbols of identity - such as the melting of bells to make weapons and ammunitions - the espionage and promiscuity.
Next is the 'armory of the Marson house' which shows a reconstruction of the displays of the original exhibition, initially housed inside the private home of its founder before being moved to its current location.
The second floor is entirely dedicated to the story of the infamous battle of Vittorio Veneto and the myth that was built around this event.
If during your tour of the Treviso province you have planned a visit to Vittorio Veneto, we advise you to check the official website of the museum for opening days and times.
