The dungeons’ museum
Piazza d' Armi 1, Pizzighettone (CR)
The Dungeons’ Museum in Pizzighettone is the first in Lombardy where are exhibited objects, tools and weapons used in the historic period of the dungeons (1785-1954). Inside of the cells are still visible the graffiti on the walls: they help us to discover the stories of the young people who were imprisoned here. This was one of the two worst military dungeons in Italy (1920-1945): big cells, no toilets or water, some punishments cells and small wet rooms for the worst inmates.
The museum tells us a rude but interesting story, the story of those who lived this terrible experience.
Saturday and Sunday: 3.00 p.m./6.00 p.m.
