The reconstruction of the Fiat 2000

A very ambitious and difficult project to carry out, but this did not stop us from completing it: the reconstruction of the Fiat 2000, or rather, the reconstruction of the first Italian tank, which had been lost for so long now.  This project, however, paid off by bringing back a piece of Italian history that was being lost.

Thanks to the stubbornness and foresight of an Italian entrepreneur, Mr. Giancarlo Marin, this challenge came to fruition and finally visitors to the 1914-1945 Civic Museum of the Armed Forces can admire this masterpiece of Italian engineering.
