Vallo Alpino Museum

    The ASVAL, with almost thirty years' experience in bunker-archaeology, having organised conferences, exhibitions, excursions and taken part in various demonstrations, has achieved its main aim of understanding how an Italian bunker functioned, and demonstrates this by structuring it.

    The museum will probably open its doors in spring 2025 after a gigantic overhaul following the damage caused by Storm Alex.
