Museo della Repubblica di Montefiorino e della Resistenza italiana

Museo Della Resistenza

The Museum was founded by the willà to perpetuate and update the memories, knowledge and a great legacy of the liberation struggle through a modern exhibition, enriched by the potentialà offered by new technologies and moreù advanced exhibition strategies, but by no means insensitive to the tradition and specificityà the physical space (the medieval fortress) and places (free zone) in which the museum is located. In continuityà with the previous building, opened in 1979 and revised in 1996, the new construction is proposed as a tool for raising awareness and historical development for emerging generations. The routeè obviously it focused on the extraordinary experience of "Partisan Republic" of 1944, with its exceptional military implications, political and social. But the story Emilian Apennines become the refraction angle from which to observe the deep history of Italian fascism, the great figures but also of anti failures, the dynamics and effects of Mussolini's Italy's participation in the war, the oscillations the consent to the totalitarian regime. 


Then the tormented events of 25 July and 8 September, the German invasion, the revival of fascism in the new role republican; but also the emotional response, military and political resistance represented. It is reconstructed in its various dimensions, with particular attention to mountain backdrop; and at different stages, from the beginning of winter difficult 1943, at the growth of the movement in the spring (also as a result of calls of Rsi), partisan until the summer of 1944. In this context, it locates the specificityà the experience of the free zone constituted between the provinces of Modena and Reggio Emilia.


This story recalls an Italy split along many fault lines: one that divides North from South liberated occupied; one that pits the fighters of the Social Republic and their partisans peers; what distinguishes the paths of the great political and military history from the experience, often painful and breathless, the communityà civilians. In the understanding of the reasons and the concrete forms taken by these fractures, and their significance at seventy by the terrible and grandiose events of 1944-45, targeting the new Museum of the Republic of Montefiorino and the Italian Resistance. Già in the name, which combines the local and the national dimension, it wants the other hand reaffirming a widely known principle to scholars, and dear to all those who care about feeling old as the foundation of social life: that every particular storyè Also, increasingly, general history; and, conversely, every great story, to be understood, must be able to bring to men and women.
