The Risorgimento, meaning the reunification of Italy in the middle 1800's, and the world wars of the 20th century are depicted here from the experiences and the perspective of the local population. There are a lot of interesting original documents to peruse as well.

Very impressive museum with many documents, photos and memorabilia related to the war. They also have a nice exhibit of garments, arms and documents. Enough documents to spend a lot of time if you are doing research.
