First World War Museum
A Sunday spent in Museum and why I love to visit museums time to time.
In September we went to see the First World War Museum in Gorizia, Italy. For us it is very near, because we live very close to the border with Italy. Also, the region I live in, was once the battlefield of FWW.
I realize that majority of people would say how boring is that, but for me is not. If you have read any of my previous posts already, you have probably noticed that I have a bit different opinions about things in general.
What is important in life?
I am a person who really likes to read books, explore new places, watch documentaries instead television. This is because I like to know things, perspectives, places. Then it is easier for me to see the bigger picture. And like that I can determine what is more important for me in my life.
Museums give me an insight how the ancestors lived back then. What were the problems they were facing with. When I think about that and compare to the problems which I am facing with now, I realize, I don’t actually have problems. When I’m depressed or sad, I think about that and it gives me instant motivation to seek solutions for my “problems”.
In my opinion, happiness doesn’t come from how many material things you have. But it is a reflection of how much you are grateful for the things you already have.
The Museum description:
The purpose of this museum of First World War is to represent the war events and their human and social influences.
After an introduction on the First World War, attention is focused on the events on the War front along the river Isonzo: besides the weapons and arms there are also objects related to the daily life of the soldiers and a real life reconstruction of a trench.
Then there is the documentation of the situation in Gorizia, a real “trenchtown” and the description of the 1917 and 1918 events, until the armistice between Italy and Austria on the 3rd of November.
Inside the Museum it is also a separated part for fashion histroy.
