MUSEO CIVICO RISORGIMENTO

museo risorgimento bologna

Located on the ground floor of Casa Carducci, the Museo del Risorgimento preserves a collection of over 3000 artifacts related to the period between the French Revolution and the Great War.

Only a small part is exposed to the vision, including about 100 paintings and 70 sculptures in addition to all the material related to military history: uniforms, flags, handkerchiefs, about 700 weapons.


Two other structures, physically separated from the Museum, are also part of the Risorgimento Museum:

  • Library with about 70,000 volumes and a rich collection of books dedicated to the history of Bologna,
  • Certosa, the monumental city cemetery, a veritable open-air museum.
