Cassino. Museum Historiale

The Historiale Museum in Cassino was inaugurated in 2004 on the occasion of the sixtieth anniversary of the Battle of Montecassino, to honour the fallen of all the nations of the Second World War.

Its layout was designed and produced by the creative genius of Carlo Rambaldi, the Oscar-winner for special effects in the movies King Kong, Alien and ET.

The itinerary takes the visitor through the most significant stages of Cassino: the evocation of the work of St. Benedict and the two world wars.

It shows the history of the bloodiest battles of World War II, the construction of the Gustav Line, the bombing of the Montecassino Abbey, military strategy, civilian witnesses, the rebirth of the area, and the strength to rebuild.
