Battle Museum – It tells the First World War
The Battle Museum is an important national landmark for the First World War. It was inaugurated on November 2, 1938, thanks to the donation of the objects of the Great War, by the soldier of Vittorio Veneto, Luigi Marson, who was a Boy of 99 ‘and grenadiers in the First World War.
The palace where the Battle Museum is located is the ancient Loggia di Ceneda which was built in 1537/38, on the orders of Cardinal Marino Grimani. The environment is very impressive and there is a notable contrast between the splendor of the building that houses the museum and the images of the drama of the Great War. After the opening of 1938 there were many donations of other objects of the Great War, which enriched the museum. Particulary, the photographic collection of Luigi Marzocchi, the photographic operator of the Italian Supreme Command, stands out, as well as official material donated by the Ministry of War. The Battle Museum is divided over three floors. On the ground floor there is a trench, which brings to life the lives of the soldiers in these dramatic spaces. On the second floor there is the Armory Marson and everything that documents the period of military occupation and the Retreat of Caporetto, while on the third floor it is possible to relive the Final Battle, which allowed Italy to win and the retreat of the Austro-Hungarian army. When I say I relive the war, I mean that a documentary film would never be able to represent so well the strength of despair and the enthusiasm of the war actions of those moments, because there are sound effects, video testimonies and olfactory effects during the percoso that immerse yourself in the historical moment as if it were actual reality. My state of mind at the exit of the museum was a great relief and a sense of gratitude for the life we have today. Basically we do not miss anything.
Green is a timeless color, especially in autumn. This outfit recalls the colors of the military uniforms, but in a romantic and chic version, just to remember how lucky we are today. The green tulle skirt worn over the black mini-dress, makes an the evening dress for an elegant dinner, combined with the spiked heel ankle boots, but can also be worn with a sporty ankle boot, for an informal daytime outfit. The coat makes the skirt even more interesting by creating a gipsy look, a little vintage. In fact, I intentionally put the 60s vintage handbag. The necklace and sunglasses are very current and bring to a more gritty reality. In this outfit I present two stores in particular that are very original in their kind. The clothes are from the Mara Dal Cin store which is very reminiscent of the sought-after boutiques of Milan, as it has original clothing items, often tailor-made for the store itself by fashion houses. In addition to this you can find home accessories such as candles, original bijiotteria and furnishing accessories, all selected with great care. The handbag is from the Isyou store, specializing in vintage garments and accessories and much more. It has really interesting handbags, original from the ’60s and’ 70s as well as other unique pieces, even current ones, with which you can create a metropolitan, original / chic outfit.
