Opened on the 3rd March 1903, on the occasion of the 50th  anniversary of the Martyrs of Belfiore’s sacrifice, the Museo del Risorgimento of Mantova had taken different seats until the end of the Eighties, when it was closed to the public because of a new imminent project of exhibition.
Then this project was stopped by the loss of some rooms .
In 2005 the collections, being left with no seat, were unified within the new Museo della Città di Palazzo S.Sebastiano, becoming its ”Sezione Risorgimentale” (Risorgimento Section).


Collection composition

The Risorgimento section consists of 1153 valuables, which are divided into different typologies:
Uniforms, equipment,accessories; Weapons and munitions; Ornaments and Badges; Coins; Medals and Decorations; Antiques; Prints; Works of art (pictures, drawings, sculptures).
The story of the Martyrs of Belfiore is particularly documented.
Publication; the collection is equipped with a publication which is made up of two parts:
