  • Once the HQ of the Nazi SS and Gestapo, this building on a quiet apartment block, was used as a place of torture and confinement of "traitors" to the German occupation forces, it now stands in celebra...  more »
  • Memorial sites like this should be visited at least once a year. The Museum is valuable custodian of documents concerning the liberation of Rome, but via Tasso is also the place that the command of the German security police had used as a prison during the Nazi occupation of Rome. The cells have remained as they were then. There are still Windows that the Germans had walled up, the inscriptions by inmates on the walls. It seems almost hear the footsteps of Colonel Kappler, who had his Office. Admission is free and includes an audio guide. You can (and I would add that "you must") leave a donation to help keep this place that much death saw. If you happen, as has happened to me, to find in the rooms of the Museum, which replaces a man prowling the audio guide poignantly in memories and in the explanations, then you'll be lucky.

  • A very interesting museum about the efforts that the Italians made to resist Nazi take over in 1944. Based in a former Gestapo prison it brings home the suffering of those who opposed Fascism. Check the opening times before setting out as they are somewhat elastic!
  • "The Museum that was a real life torture chamber and pathway to the firing squad" Last October I had been on a week's holiday in Rome, Italy visiting the marvellous ancient ruins and historical sites. On the last day I went to the "Museum of the Liberation of Rome". It was a little difficult to find and when I found it, it seemed to be just part of a typical Italian apartment block. Which it was. In 1943 the German SS turned this ordinary residential block into a prison and torture chamber. Anti-fascists, resistance fighters and Italian Jews were interrogated, imprisoned and even tortured in these same rooms. Many were then sent for immediate execution or to die in concentration camps. This SS base has now been turned into a museum and some of the cells have been restored. The displays were informative but upsetting and disturbing. This must have been a place of pain, terror and despair for so many people. I had spent the days immediately beforehand visiting the Rome Colosseum and the Forum and knew that great acts of brutality and cruelty had happened at all these locations. Yet this was all thousands of years ago and you can feel distance from it. The savagery that took place at Via Tasso 145, Rome happened in the lifetime of my parents and in an ordinary block of flats that you will find in every city and town in Europe and beyond. I would recommend that if you visit Rome, you should definitely reserve an hour or two to visit this site and learn, remember and mourn. Then vow to never forget and do whatever is necessary to fight present day fascism and Nazis - never, again, ever.
  • Good
  • A very interesting Museum able to engage visitors on climate that affected the town during the Nazi occupation, thanks to its collection of objects, letters, posters, newspapers and photos. Walking between the cells you can almost see the scenes of imprisonment, survival and daily routine between the prisoners and the German soldiers who passed through the building between 43 and 44.
