LE CIMINIERE IS THE BUILDING HOSTING THE "LANDING MUSEUM"
In January 18, my class and I went to Catania to visit the landing museum, “ Museo dello sbarco”
The landing of theallied armies took place in 1943 when the American and British
helped the Italians to put an end
to the fascism regime and the Second World War.
This museum, hosted in the “Ciminiere building” in Catania ,has a large collection of pictures,
articles, videos telling the detailed landing event, an exibihition of the allies military uniforms and
The most beautiful and interesting thing to see was the Bunker
because it made us feel the sufferings, the fear and
the disastrous horrors that people lived at that time
"To believe, to obey , to fight" was the motto of the fascist Benito Mussolini.
