Uppland Museum

Uppsala, Sweden

The Upplandsmuseet (Uppland Museum) is the county museum of Uppsala County. The institution is responsible for preservation and conducting research in the area of the cultural history and archaeology of the county, including the city of Uppsala (parts of the historical province of Uppland, from which the museum takes its name, belong to Stockholm County). The permanent exhibition covers subjects such as the history of the city, of Uppsala Cathedral, and of student life at Uppsala University.

The museum is located in the old water mill formerly belonging to the university, the Akademikvarnen ("Academy mill") on the Fyris River in central Uppsala. The exterior of the building was used by Ingmar Bergman for the bishop's house in the film Fanny and Alexander (1982).

Fascinating. My personal favourite was the rune stones, but there's several other really good exhibits, with a strong emphasis on daily life throughout the ages - diet, clothing, even music. Non-Swedish speakers will profit from an instant translator tool like the camera option in the Google Translate app.

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.
