We were a little put off by the fact Mussolini had this built, really why? A sore thumb in our opinion but eh someone else may think it great.

The displays really draw out what Mussolini was trying to do with Bolzamo and what part it played in his grand project. The architecture is fascinating and the view of the sunlit Dolomites through its aches is breathtaking.

Nothing like taking a fascist triumphal arch and turning it into a memorial of two wars and a warning of the dictators that precipitated them. We were sorry we could not see the exhibit beneath the arch as it is closed Mondays, our one day in Bolzano.

For those of us who have little knowledge of the 20th century history of the South Tyrol / Alto Adige area, the museum under the Monument to Victory is an extremely professional and informative display and presentation. It really helps to appreciate the complex recent past of this German speaking area of Italy. It's free and in three languages -... More

BZ 18 - 45 exhibition is underneath the monument and it is so interesting to learn about the history of Bolzano-Bozen as well as the story of how and why the monument was built. The exhibition is very well presented with a mix of film, photos and written material and is free!

Declared to be the first fascist monument, it is now a perfect place to think about past, present and future of Europe. This monument contains an excellent museum providing full information about coexistence of 3 different cultures in South Tyrol before and during WWII. It contains a lot of interesting texts, videos and moreover an interesting mosaic. One of the... More

The Monument itself might seem nothing of partcular interest - but insideit hides a Museum in which everything is clearsly explained - also the fact that the Town belonged to Austria and was then given-with the rest of the territory-to Italy when the treaty of Saint Germain was signed. All those who still wonder why here some people are native... More

It is very difficult to rate by circles such a place. When you pass by (or sit in for a while - it's quite nice) a huge riverside park and cross the bridge you enter a distinctly other part of town. And the first thing you can see - in fact it's impossible to miss - is this monument to... More
