Went in the naval museum to get out of the rain and only €1.55 entrance fee but found it fascinating. A lot of displays of various naval boats and warfare and artefacts, but my favourite was a photographic exhibition of expeditions in the 1960's and...More

Volevo sapere se al Museo può interessare una pubblicazione formato libro scritto a mano del 1880/81 dove vengono spiegate le manovre da effettuare per l'attracco, le ancore, i verricelli, i nomi tecnici delle navi, brigantini ecc. con illustrazioni disegnate a mano e tanto altro
