The Museum Route
Thanks to MuseoCity, a non-profit association, it is possible to visit the Historical Museum of Firefighters, the same one that opens its doors to the public for the first time.
The museum tour allows enthusiasts and non-enthusiasts to discover a fascinating private treasure that traces, through the story of the body, the history of Italy.
Inside the museum you can “touch” with your hands everything that has to do with the Fire Fighters: from work tools to means of transport, from uniforms to communication devices. And everything that runs parallel and collateral to them: from the health care service (active until the early 1900s) to the gymnastic body (where Carlo Galimberti was active, to whom the Milan Sports Group is now dedicated, award-winning Firefighter and champion Olympic, who lost his life heroically in the exercise of duty).
Firefighters: Knights and Heroes
This historical and cultural journey tells of men and women where the firmness of the spirit is equal to that of the ancient medieval knights. Those who made honor, courage, loyalty and mercy their principles.
Heroes who, when we are in trouble, are always the first to intervene. To have a word of encouragement and show us the way to resist.
The museum in every object, in every word of its guides and in every detail taken care of transmits the love that these men and women have for the Firefighters. And as the prayer of Saint Barbara , patroness of the body says: “A day without risk is not lived, because for us believers death is life, it is light: in the terror of collapses, in the fury of the waters, in the hell of the pyres. “
