For Schools - Base Tuono

Go to content

The tension between East and West of the World, the political, ideological and military opposition that marked an era and that brought Humanity to the brink of a devastating nuclear conflict. A defense system that has contributed to peacekeeping. At Base Tuono we tell the Cold War. Nearby, at the Malga Zonta shrine, we illustrate the Resistance and at Forte Belvedere, on the Lavarone plateau, we tell the story of the Great War
It lasts about 1.30 hours  and in the case of multiple classes, students are necessarily divided into multiple  groups.
In this case the visit occurs simultaneously,  on different paths.

For schools the access  fee to Base Tuono, with guided tour,  it is € 3.50  per student including a visit to the nearby Malga Zonta shrine and an illustration  of the phenomenon  of Resistance at a general,  regional and local level. Free access for teachers  and carers.
Payment can be made in advance  by bank transfer or directly  at the Base ticket office.
