In September 2016, the MUdeF, the Museum of Fortresses in the Ligurian city, was built inside the Firmafede Fortress of Sarzana, erected in 1249 by the Pisans and subsequently destroyed and rebuilt by the Florentines.
The museum space is divided into 27 halls to the subterranean and its peculiarity is not to own a collection: yet it manages to create a place in habited by gentlemen, knights, bishops, pilgrims, merchants, peasants and soldiers who they actually populated these spaces. Thanks to animated plastics, actor-spotted stories, spy lock holes, an equipped kitchen, talking screens, 360 ° immersion cinema and more, visitors are catapulted in the history of Lunigiana and its protagonists through its fortresses, uses and customs that are reintegrated into their own residential and, above all, historical context.
A special bracelet, provided at the entrance, accompanies visitors throughout the museum path, enabling them to activate multimedia content such as projections, audio and video. The children, however, have a room dedicated to them, where they can draw on a blackboard the steps of building a castle and build a fortress thanks to a 3D puzzle.
