PIANA DELLE ORME (60 km from Rome), a living Museum of WWII, is not made of stuffy corridors full of glass cases housing dusty relics: it’s a unique Museum, where the Italian Campaign comes alive before your very eyes!
In the huge pavillions of PIANA DELLE ORME it is impossible to remain unmoved before the vivid reconstructions of THE BATTLES OF EL ALAMEIN, CASSINO, ANZIO and compelling eye-witness accounts of deportation, and the actual vehicles that took part in this campaign: 300 among jeeps, trucks, tanks,and aircraft, so well preserved that they are used by the cinema industry to this day (The English patient, Life is beautiful).
Two rarities a worth a mention: the only working SHERMAN DUPLEX DRIVE tank in existence, and the CURTISS P40I WARHAWK airplane, both retrivied from the sea and lovingly restored, the latter, again, thought to be the only example of its kind. Simply unmissable for a true understanding of this era.
