|The main Italian Great War |
museum in Rovereto
Beside of that, we should consider that probably the idea of historical museum itself is now facing one of the biggest crises ever: historical museums should rethink their guidelines and their strategies in order to be attractive without compromising the quality of the offer. Everybody knows that historical museums should go beyond their dusty tapestry and that their precious weapon collections can turn one day into knick-knack. Alas... what a big challenge! Perhaps too big for us. That’s why we need to go grassroots and prefer to tell some stories of Great War Museums in Italy, just to recap and map the hundreds of dots that hopefully will turn tomorrow into a special and magnificent blueprint. And we cannot but start from the principal First World War museum one can find in Italy, called "Museo Storico della Grande Guerra" in the city of Rovereto. It’s for sure the most prominent and complete museum dedicated to the war years in the eastern front between Italy and Central Empires.
