The Historical Museum of Infantry was inaugurated in 1959. It is located in an Art Nouveau three-story building. The material is exhibited in chronological order in 35 halls and 5 galleries. It consists of arms, uniforms, flags, relics, documents, plastic models, sculptures, and paintings related to Infantry and to its specializations, from the Ancient times to the Union of Italy, from the two World Wars to the War of Liberation. The plastic model of the battle of Zama that took place in 202 BC between the Romans and the Carthaginians, and the natural-scale reproduction of a trench of the First World War are of particular interest. The War Memorial is located on the first floor.
