The Historical Museum of Liberation was founded in 1988 as a joint initiative of the members of the "Associazione Toscana Volontari della Libertà" and those of the "Centro Educazione Democratica", part of the larger "Federazione Italiana Volontari della Libertà".
This Museum is unique in its kind in so far as it reconstructs the history of the Italian army, navy and air force during the 1940-1943 period of WWII.
It preserves relics, photos, maps and uniforms; in a special section are kept the urns containing earth from Italian military graveyards and Italian villages or towns where massacres by the nazis occurred.
In future the over 1000 volumes deposited here will be rearranged and catalogued to form a library.
Wednesday and Saturday: 15:00-18:00
Third Sunday of each month: 10:00-18:00
