The permanent exhibition features a large number of objects and materials of daily use, which the soldiers used on the Alpine front in World War I. In over thirty years of research of the battle fields, mainly in the areas of Adamello and Pasubio, Anthony Storti from Recoaro has recovered items now available to everyone, offering an unusual perspective on the living conditions of soldiers at the front.
From clothing to food, from personal hygiene to work in trenches, from personal defence to the rare moments of rest, the reality told with the exhibition of "The life of a soldier in the Great War" is far from the official news of war and the photographs.
The story of the conflict deliberately takes on an anti-heroic, almost homely dimension, where the memories of soldiers, their hopes, the sound of cannons, and the wind of the harsh land, the advance and the retreat punctuate the days and life.
