WW I is usually remembered in terms of the trenches of Flanders. Our knowledge of the war on the Italian Front is usually limited to Hemingway's "A Farewell to Arms". This museum attempts to tell the tale of the war in the frozen crags of the Dolomites, on the Austrian border. There are arms, uniforms, & gear displayed, and a large collection of photos. We were specially impressed with the docent, (ex Italian Army officer) who was terribly knowledgeable & spoke good English. There are also several contemporary silent films shown, that are particularly poignant. This is a great place to fill in your knowledge on a little known corner of 20th Cent. history.
