The Museum was financed by the members of A.N.M.I.G.(National Cribbles and Invalids of the War founded in 1917) and their relatives. It exhibits relics of different kinds and belonging to different historical periods (Independence battles Unification of Italy and the World Wars). There’re original uniforms, weapons, medals, coins, military ornaments, badges of ranks and furnishings.
There are a lot of relics belonging to the First World War and to the military campaign in Ethiopia.
The many relics from the First World War are relevant both from an human and a historical point of view. The most important ones are those belonging to Fulcieri Paulucci di Calboli (1893-1919) a military and then invalid who became famous for his strong coherence. The Forlì section of this association is dedicated to his memory.
