HISTORICAL RESEARCH CENTER GOTHIC TUSCANY
The Centre for Historical Research and Documentation called “Gotica Toscana” was created to preserve the memory of the Second World War in Tuscany, with particular attention to the events in September 1944 when the Apennines north of Florence were a focal point. The permanent and temporary thematic exhibitions are the result of discoveries, private collections, or donations of local people. Upon request guided tours of the Museum and to the battlefield.
The museum offers documents, textbooks, oral records and original WW2 footage to history enthusiasts, scholars and students and can also arrange battlefield tour on demand in order to give a precise explanation of the events and show original outposts.
Finally, the indoor displays of the museum, which are the result of years of intensive research, battleground findings and collection of materials from local donors and its members, give visitors the chance to get well acquainted with men, uniforms and equipment which were protagonists of the last all but forgotten part of the Italian Campaign.Finally, since 2012 the centre is intended also as a meeting point for military vehicles collectors, hosting the headquarters of the Italian History & Military Veihcles club and most of all the official Italian office of Military Vehicle Preservation Association which can offer to its Italian and foreign members support, assistance and care when visiting the territory.
