Eventos > MUSEO STORICO DELLA GRANDE GUERRA '15-'18 - Historical Museum of the Great War 1915-1918

MUSEO STORICO DELLA GRANDE GUERRA '15-'18 - HISTORICAL MUSEUM OF THE GREAT WAR 1915-1918 “The main purpose of the museum is not to exalt the war, but to let people know the horrors and cruelty of the war itself". (Romeo Covolo, “Canove-Il Museo della Grande Guerra 15-18").   The museum, staged in the charming former railway station that served the rail line Piovene Rocchette – Asiago from 1910 to 1958, represents one of the most comprehensive and interesting italian collections of materials of the First World War.
On the occasion of the celebration of the first world war centenary, the Museum opens its doors every weekend of the year, every day from June the 15th to September the 15th, and on reservation for the rest of the year.  Visitors can closely observe a huge amount of war material, objects, photographs and testimonies from the period 1915-1918. The museum shows arms, ammunitions and grenades (that are like 420 mm bullet, the largest caliber of austro-Hungarians in this area; it was 160 centimeters tall and contained explosive for 70 kilograms). Moreover, the collection is composed by over 5000 artifacts of any kind:  clothes, tools, furnishings, decorations, official documents, personal testimonies, and much more.
The Museum contains over 1000 photographs and reproductions of the covers of the magazine "La Domenica del Corriere" (issued in 1965 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Italy's entry into the first world war). Visitors can appreciate and look closely the many means of defense and offense and the logistics that was necessary to maintain in full working two opposing masses, 300,000 men each, lined up on the Asiago plateau throughout the war. The Museum collection is constantly increasing its volume  thanks to the continuing donations from the so-called "Recuperanti", which are those people specialized and equipped to recover objects from the former battlefields and lands, in order to put them safe and to be shown.
The great war has been for the Altopiano a destroying happening that has caused serious damage to the population, which used to  live counting on agriculture and animal husbandry. In fact, the massive and unimaginable number of grenades that exploded on the land by both Italian and Hungarian sides, caused the destruction of fields and pastures, and put in serious difficulties the families, which had been deprived of dignity and susteanance.
Hanger and deprivation are relevant issues in countries that are devastated by the war, and this happened during the first world war, as it’s happening nowadays in an even more drastic way. In fact, the usage of chimical materials and weapons destroys lands and environment, making it impossibile for civil people to grow food and defeat starvation.

Roana is certainly the most heterogeneous among the municipalities of the Altopiano dei 7 Comuni. It consists in fact of 6 localities, also called “bell towers” because each village has its own parish church. These small towns are: Camporovere, Canove, Cesuna, Mezzaselva,  Roana and Tresché Conca.
Only a few kilometers separate the 6 suburbs from each other, so it is easy to walk or bike between one village to the other, even going alternative routes, forests and meadows.
From any village, unique landscapes and breathtaking views go far beyond the edges of the Altopiano, and the visitor can easily see, when the sky is clear, even the Dolomites and the Venice lagoon in the distance.
Roana's territory is largely covered by forests, fields, pastures and gentle slopes, and the average altitude of the villages is about 1000 metres above sea level; this makes Roana (along with the other municipalities of the Altopiano) the perfect destination for a relaxing mountain holiday.  
The sweetness of the mountain profiles, the fresh air and the endless green invite to spend the day outdoor, in a peaceful environment, where the good climate and the magical colors throughout the four seasons of the year make the tourist feel in peace.
Roana can offer a high level of accommodation and a great network of sports choices, from football and volleyball to tennis, from ice skating or summer-skating to orienteering, from swimming to hiking trees and mountains, not to mention the hundreds of kilometers practicable in summer by bike and in winter skiing and finally a little lake suitable for swimming.
History has left thousands traces during the flow of time: from the prehistory, with the Valdassa graffiti, to the years of the Venetian Republic, when the whole Altopiano was an autonomous federation inhabited by the “Cimbri”, a germanic population that settled down and built villages; from the first world war, when entire villages were destroyed and many forts and trenches were built to fight the Austro-Hungarian enemy, to the years of reconstruction and tourism and agriculture development.
Even the enogastronomic perspective is rich in the Roana surroundings: mountains host tens of alpine huts, where chees is still produced, as long as many other local products, and the lands offer little fruits, mushrooms and herbs in plenty.
Every inch of the territory of Roana and the other seven municipalities is rich in history, culture and local traditions. Many festivals (such as the Hoga Zait) and celebrations are organized in order to preserve the ancient way of life and to show visitors how the strong population of the Altopiano used to live, never forgetting its own roots and its identity.
