The aim of the exhibition is to raise awareness of a subject that today probably needs to be rediscovered and re-evaluated.
The Unknown Soldier is a symbol of Unity and Peace as well as of Human Charity towards the Fallen of a War that shaped Italy, and Europe.
We also want to answer some questions that are spontaneous among visitors at this time of commemoration: why was there such a high number of unnamed fallen soldiers? When and why
was the Unknown Soldier project born? What did it represent yesterday and how is it perceived today?
An exhibition that, among other things, aims to excite the visitor by recalling the fate of those who perished without a name on their grave, raising awareness of the human justice of giving a place to mourn to every family.
But it also wants to recall the civic importance of the symbol of the Unknown Soldier, the last of the forgotten who became the most important soldier. The hope is to involve even the youngest, schoolchildren, through guided tours workshops, events and presentations. In addition, with a competition aimed at all students in Vicenza and called ‘La scuola per il Milite’ (The School for the Soldier), the intention is to try to raise awareness among young people, who through artistic and literary works can offer their own point of view on the subject. The works sent to the Museum will be exhibited at the conclusion of the exhibition.
