Milan has a museum dedicated entirely to the unification of Italy and the events leading up to it. Founded in 1885, the Museo del Risorgimento has been headquartered since 1951 in Brera, in the 18th Century Palazzo Moriggia, designed by Piermarini, the same architect who put his signature to La Scala. The museum, which has the honour of housing the first Italian flag, will host an exhibition entitled “Napoleone III e l’Italia. La nascita di una nazione”, displaying numerous unpublished photographs of that era. The exhibition is scheduled to run until 10 April when it will move to Paris. Entrance to the museum is 2 euros. Admission to the exhibition is free of charge (9.00am-1pm/2pm-5.30pm).
