A place with huge potential that currently is not there. Superb location, interesting exhibition and good atmosphere. However, the exhibition was not really in a chronological order. The locale had very dated features that could easily be replaced for a better impression (lighting, signs etc). Not all exhibitions were in English which was a down side. I enjoyed it, but it is not perhaps for the casual museum goer.

Great and informative museum. The views from the top of the tower are epic. Highly advised!

Nice little musuem you don't need any more than 1-1.5 hours go explore it but it's good for a rainy day. The palaeopathology section is especially interesting. However only about half the exhibits have English translations so bear this in mind.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
