  • The Red Cross Museum is a Museum is unusual because it is not limited to disclose the history of humanitarian organization, but has the expressed purpose to the visitor the philosophy that drives the actions of the Red Cross and the many problems, to which very often do not think created by war situations and other contexts where human rights are violated. The permanent exhibition is divided into three parts, very different from one another and great Visual and emotional impact: one concerning human dignity, the other family ties and the third dedicated to natural hazards. In all he pays great attention to the evidence, allowing the visitor to enter directly into contact with the witnesses who tell their story. Really a nice Museum, or rather an experience, very important today more than ever. Council to accept the audioguide that comes with the ticket, otherwise you can not see the show. There is also the Italian language.
