About
The Cervi Museum is located in the low plain around Reggio Emilia and it is set in the house where the Cervi family lived from 1934, a wide farmhouse located at “Campirossi”, a plot of land with an extension of 53 “biolche reggiane” (about 16 hectares) on the border between the villages of Gattatico and Campegine. The Cervi Museum originated from the collection of objects that the family of the seven brothers preserved since the years of the war and those that were given to them afterwards (printed materials and manuscripts, honors and official decorations, albums, relics, artworks). These materials first found a place during the sixties in a specific small room created during the enlargement of the building. With the re-qualification of the building, a new museum itinerary has been shaped: starting from the extraordinary living, working, and fighting experience of the Cervi family to the work in the countryside, anti-fascism and Resistance.

A life-changing experience

As part of an educational Study Tour to Reggio Emilia we visited this small museum with the participants. From the bravery of one family in 1940's Italy, we learnt what underpins education and understood "the desire for a different sort of citizenship". A stunning little museum!

Memories of freedom

The museum is located in a farm like many other farms in this area 70 years ago. But it has been preserved as a homage to the 7 Cervi Brothers that have been killed by the fascist police in 1943.
Many Italians like to visit this place and remember their sacrifice for freedom.
