A story to be experienced!
At the MICR, primary, middle and high school students can discover the history of the largest international humanitarian association and retrace the steps of the Italian Risorgimento in an interactive and entertaining way.

Multimedia supports, interactive technologies, rare objects and documents help students to immerse themselves in the tumultuous and fascinating era of the Risorgimento. An essential period in the school curriculum, often difficult to read and interpret.
