Me and my partner love visiting various Italian cities, we appreciate the food/drink, culture, old architecture and of courses all the churches and cathedrals. However, if you are visiting Bologna, you must go to this museum! It's totally unique, emotional and touching. Do be warned, if you cannot speak or read Italian, do your research first as no English information... More

Small, but full of meaning, the museum touches you in your heart. Don't miss the film about the crash.

This is an incredibly moving and powerful tribute to the victims of the Ustica plane crash. Describing the place will not do it justice so if in Bologna, you must experience it first hand. It is an easy 10 minute walk from the train station and there are a couple of good coffee shops on the way which you may... More

Over 30 years since the crash of flight 870 , a definitive answer to the question of what caused the crash is still not available. An English language TV program a few years ago claimed that it was a bomb placed on board, but many theories still abound and evidence is conflicting. The remains of the aircraft came to rest...

As with the many museums in Bologna they are superb. You have to visit the religious art and buildings are stunning.

A very moving commemoration of the victims of the Ustica disaster. A must, should we forget. The actually reconstruction of the wreck is incredible. But the most harrowing sight is the black boxes containing what was recovered of the victims' personal belongings.

This memorial of the mysterious plane crash near the island of Ustica is very well curated and presented as to linger for a long time in one's conscience. The remains of the actual fuselage have been meticulously collected from the ocean floor to be displayed in the center of the hall that was built specifically to house it. Surrounded by... More

There are no words to explain the sensation you'll have visiting this museum. this big plane lying on the floor, the recorded voices of the death passengers, the lights bulb switching on and off. just go there and remind what happened.
