Po River WWII Museum Italy
The PO RIVER WWII MUSEUM is a centre devoted to the memory of the war events that took place in the areas along the great river during the Second World War. The museum collection includes moving images, photographs, documents, and historical objects from the period between the Allies?????¢?? first aerial sortees in 1944 over the area and the victorious crossing of the Po river in April 1945.
The geographical position of Felonica (Mantova) is crucial, in this context, in order to understand the unfolding of those events: because its position was central to the crossing paths of the retreating German troops and because it represented the Army boundary of the 5th US Army and the 8th British Army.
