Overview

Built on the structure of the old elementary school, it was inaugurated as a picture gallery in 1982 by the President of Republic Sandro Pertini. It was transformed in the actual Museum of the Resistance in 1991. The exhibition offers a panorama of the events which unfolded in Versilia, Tuscany and Italy during the Nazi occupation. The exhibition (historic- documentary) covers chronologically the fases of Resistance in Versilia, putting in evidence the important aspect, episodes and personalities most significant, on the basis of documents, pictures, objects and newspapers drawn from the archive of the Historical Institute of the Resistance, Provincia of Lucca. Ample space is dedicated to the massacres of the Nazi- Fascists in the Tirrenico sector of the Gothic Line, among which the massacre at Sant’Anna of 12 August 1944 was the most tragic. The multi -media hall is equipped with touchscreen. Outside there's the Ossuary Monument, the place where the Martyrs of St.Anna were buried.

It's quite a drive to this remote hilltop village but it's well worth the effort. The village itself is a poignant reminder of a particularly barbaric WW2 mass execution and now constitutes a national peace memorial. There's a delightful little chapel, terrace cafe (deserted when...More

The Chiesa Sant''Anna is a beautiful small church that has been restored after the Nazi invasion in 1942. The memorial at the top of the hill is very touching, remembering the lives of over 500 people killed on August 12, 1942, when the Nazis invaded...More
