The collection gathers together a large number of memories, uniforms, postcards, photographs of people in the area and allows the retelling in a different fashion of the world of yesterday as our "grandparents" knew it. It is a story retold through the knowledge of a most disparate collection of objects, both military and civil, of what the army was all about and in which, with few exceptions, our ancestors served. A story turned over and not yet thoroughly investigated for many particular units but revisited and told through the collections.


The collections relate to the history of the subjects of the Austrian Littoral, called up for military service in both peace and war, while not neglecting the problem of the status of refugees in 1915 - 1917. The material is entirely owned by the curator, Roberto Todero, and is in very good condition and includes uniforms and equipment capable of bringing back the atmosphere of an era accompanied by personal items necessary for everyday life. Special collections include: propaganda postcards, vintage photographs, war games for children at the time, military-related items and the role of animals, especially dogs, in war. There is a wide range of documents, regulations and testimonials
