About
The Risorgimento and Resistance Museum is closely linked to the traditions, culture and moral life of the city and province. The material held and the location of the museum itself explain why it contains memories of important Italian events and people that were at the centre of the city’s history. The Ambellicopoli hill, the site of the museum’s Villa Guiccioli premises, was where the heroic resistance of 1848 took place. The people of Vicenza defended the city from here with volunteers from various other parts of the peninsula. The collections held by the museum are extremely varied and interesting; even a short list can help give an idea of this wealth. The main nucleus of the documentation consists of printed publications, periodicals, newspapers, manuscripts, portraits, pictures, prints, diaries, announcements, proclamations, decrees, private deeds, coins, medals, decorations, civil and military maps, firearms, bayonets, swords, flags and various kinds of military object. It is not difficult to identify a common historical thread in such materials. The documents and mementoes in the collections provide interesting evidence of historic local, national and in some cases European events from the time of Napoleon’s first Italian campaign in 1796 to the end of the Second World War and the fight for liberation (1945). This one and a half century period transformed the political, social, economic and moral nature of Italy and Europe several times.

If you are interested to find details about the life of the soldiers from the italian Army this museum is the best place. You will find guns, clothes, phones, flags, maps and many other thinks used in war. The park of this museum it is beautiful and you could make a walk from museum to Villa Rotonda.

Relics from the history of Vicenza's resistance to foreign and domestic invaders. Artillery outside and arms and uniforms inside.
It wasn't crowded on a Sunday morning and we spent about an hour.

My wife and I toured this museum. We were happy with the free admission and the experience was good. There was one person working there and pointed us in the direction of the exibits that included 3 levels. There is a wealth of local and regional historic information available but we could only glean a small fraction off the Italian written plaques about the artifacts. It was worth our time, and shame on me for not studying more Italian. We exited the building and was pleasantly surprised with a walking trail including one that winds all the way down the foothill with several great views including two of a cathedral.

Visited Easter Monday. Lovely spot with beautiful gardens, very helpful staff, amazing views back over the sanctuary and church. Very quiet, interesting displays.

We visited the museum as an extension of our walk from the centre of Vicenza to the Santuario della Madonna di Monte Berico. The walk took about 10 minutes or so from the church.

Unfortunately, we arrived at the entrance just over 15 minutes before the museum closed for lunch (why do the Italians close so many places of interest for 2 or 3 hours at lunchtime!?). But we didn’t mind too much because our admission was included with the Vicenza Museum card and so was effectively free. This was just as well, because no concessions were made for those who couldn’t speak (or at least read) Italian. All the explanatory notices were in Italian, which makes a visit to the museum pretty much a waste of time for many overseas tourists. This is a bit sad, because several of the exhibits looked potentially interesting … but only for those who could read the descriptions!

If the museum wants to attract more overseas visitor, then descriptions accompanying the displays need to be not just in Italian. It is for this reason, and this reason only, that we’ve given the attraction the score that we have.

Ok but if you wish to visit a really good museum on the Risorgimento, go to the one in Turin. This is worth a visit combined with Monte Berico. Do not go Monday as it is closed.
