History of the Piana delle Orme Museum in Latina

The museum is now part of a developed complex of agricultural, commercial and tourist activities, but originally it was an agro-floral company. Signor De Pasquale, the owner, began to collect materials and documents on the reclamation and colonization of the Agro Pontino. And soon he expanded the collection to relics and artifacts relating to the Second World War.
This is how, in 1996, the Museum was opened to the public, and since then the collections have increased more and more through a series of new purchases and donations, making it necessary to reorganize the structure and exhibitions over time, also to meet the progressive increase in visitors.
In 2006 the historic founder passed away, but his family continued, with commitment and passion, in the continuous expansion and improvement of this museum.

What you will find in the pavilions of the Museum

The first pavilions that you will find during the visit are dedicated to the environmental, territorial, economic and social transformations that took place following the reclamation and colonization of the Agro Pontino, which began in 1927. The photographic documentation of this historical phase is very full-bodied and nourished , and allows to pay great attention to the environment, life and society of the different areas of this area.
Other pavilions are dedicated to life in the fields, to vintage agricultural vehicles, toys and model-making.

As for the war route, there is a large display of materials, vehicles and vehicles, as well as various exhibits. Everything is accompanied by images, videos and texts. Here too, photographs abound, but there are also plenty of topographic maps and precious memorabilia. The scenography is then very accurate and as precise as possible. Several scenarios are even reconstructed through the use of uniformed mannequins and the arrangement of vehicles, vehicles and unique pieces of artillery.

In these pavilions there are over three hundred military vehicles, scattered along a path that seeks to reconstruct the Second World War. The events relating to the campaign of Africa until the landing in Sicily find space , passing through what happened in Anzio and Cassino.

Following the institution of the Memorial Day , and in light of the growing interest in the Museum shown by the schools, which are increasingly in numbers, in 2013 a pavilion was also set up on deportation and internment. The scenes that are reconstructed are very spectacular, also thanks to the always generous use of technical and scenic means and elements of great impact.
