On Saturday 14 May 2022 at 10.30 a.m. we will officially open the exhibition ‘One hundred, a century of collections’.
The Montecchio Maggiore Municipal School Museum was founded precisely one hundred years ago by Cavalier Giuseppe Zannato and was one of the first museums in the Veneto region. Multidisciplinary, the museum touched on many different themes, including military history. And it is precisely this dimension that we want to tell with this exhibition. Although it is not our direct anniversary, we feel that we are also somewhat heirs to the historical collections of 1922. Collections that we are now re-proposing to visitors through the surviving memorabilia (with the addition of many others collected and recovered from similar pieces to those in the catalogues of the time and now disappeared). It’s like Grandpa’s birthday.
Under the patronage of the Veneto Region and the Municipality of Montecchio Maggiore.
With the collaboration of:
Municipality of Montecchio Maggiore Italian War History Museum of Rovereto G.Zannato Museum of Natural Science of Montecchio Maggiore
