Informative museum detailing the crash of Itavia Flight 870. The documentary material in the video room is unfortunately only in Italian (no subtitles), but even if you do not understand Italian, the museum will give you a sense of the great loss of life. Few...More

Those who are aware of this unlucky Itavia flight will be touched, the others will learn about one of the biggest and unexplained tragedies of our times. Not a fun ride, but an impressive sight

Small, but full of meaning, the museum touches you in your heart. Don't miss the film about the crash.
