Great museum and views

We have been to Bardonecchia 3 times before but that was in the skiing season. This time we came in early autumn and was looking at things to do and places to walk.
Our local friend suggested this Museum of Artillery, being an ex artillery soldier myself this seemed a good place to go.
Now you can get a bit of the way by road if you hire a car, but we decided to walk up the paths leading up to it, the first bit is a bit steep but this soon becomes more flat as you near the fort.
I wasn’t expecting much, so I was absolutely thrilled to see how much is in this museum. It was build around the time of Napoleon III and was to guard against the French “their southern boarder is only kilometres away. It was built around the same time as the Tenby Artillery fortress but had been in constant use until after WW2.
They have virtually restored most of the garrison’s quarters and have a fine collection of manakins in period uniforms.
Lots of Artillery pieces from cannon’s to WW2 guns.
Some detailed models and panorama’s how the fort would have worked.
Those interested in WW1 and the Italian fight against German and Austria/Hungarian troops can see all the equipment.
Those that are interested in WW2 there is even more stuff from beginning to end of WW2. This covers the rise of Mussolini through Middle East, the invasion of Italy by the allies, the capture of Mussolini and Italians being occupied by the Germans to end of WW2.
On top of this the fort is strategically placed in the mountains so the views are magnificent.
My only criticism is it’s all in Italian, and there is no kind of headphone translation? You are given a A4 piece of paper with a very brief history on🤔 but maybe it’s because this place does not get the promotion it deserves which is a great shame.
Anyone interested in history this is an absolute must.
I will be promoting this place to people I know in England that will love it.

A flight in the war history of Piemonte
We enjoyed the visit. A lot of historical material and a stunning location with a view. I expecially liked to read the old newspapers.
