The museum is hosted in the village of Ponzalla in the former school. The village is part of the Community of Scarperia and San Piero. It is located along the road identified as HW6524 by the 5th Army US in WW2. It is in the sector of the Gothic Line comprised between the Futa Pass and the Giogo Pass, on the south slopes of Mount Altuzzo, the battlefield of the breakthrough of the Gothic Line in September 1944.

The exhibitions

The museum hosts permanent and temporary exhibitions, showing the relics found on the battlefield or donated by the inhabitants. The collections of the WW2 items, documents, oral history recordings and film enable the visitors to become aware of the men, uniforms and items involved in that last, often forgotten, part of the Italian Campaign.

We are sure the knowledge of such events in trying to understand the historical framework is the first step to not having to relive them again. The aim is to remember today those distant times and to provide the awareness of how is bitter the road to freedom.

The project

The hosting building of the museum dating back to the sixties. It was the nursery school for the village of Ponzalla, its cultural value lies not in the building structure but in the activities of conservation and dissemination of the historical memory. Gotica Toscana npa provides the ordinary maintenance, but the building needs some structural works to meet the actual standard in earthquake area and the rearrangement of the external area to allow the placement of some historical items that can not be hosted inside.

Le mostre

Il museo ospita mostre permanenti e temporanee, mostrando le reliquie trovate sul campo di battaglia o donati dagli abitanti. Le collezioni di WW2 oggetti, documenti storia orale le registrazioni e film consentono ai visitatori di diventare consapevoli degli uomini, uniformi e gli elementi coinvolti in questo ultima, spesso dimenticata, parte della campagna d'Italia.

Siamo certi che la conoscenza di tali eventi per cercare di comprendere il quadro storico è il primo passo per non dover rivivere nuovamente. Lo scopo è quello di ricordare oggi questi tempi lontani e di fornire la consapevolezza di come è amara la strada verso la libertà.

Il progetto

L'edificio che ospita il Museo risale agli anni sessanta. È stata la scuola materna per il villaggio di Ponzalla, il suo valore culturale non risiede nella struttura dell'edificio ma in attività di conservazione e diffusione della memoria storica. Gotica Toscana onlus fornisce la manutenzione ordinaria, ma l'edificio necessita di alcune opere strutturali per soddisfare lo standard in zona sismica e la sistemazione della zona esterna per consentire il posizionamento di alcuni elementi storici che non possono essere ospitati all'interno.

Risks and challenges

“Gotica Toscana onlus” provides for the ordinary maintenance, but the building needs structural adjustments as roof remake and earthquake-proof structural works.
The reorganisation concerns also the external area which will be used for the museum activities.
The Public Authority believes in “Gotica Toscana Association” activities and will invest resources in its museum projects because of the positive results obtained unitil now .

We have worked hard on covering every aspect of this project in detail.

We are ready to take this next step with you.
