The Museum of the Roman Republic and the memory Garibaldina delves - with historical documents, artwork, multimedia materials and teaching - history, places and personalities of that crucial moment of the Risorgimento, which was the Roman Republic in 1849, which tells the short but significant experience until his tragic end on the Janiculum.
Besides being itself reminiscent of the facts of its history and location, the structure of the Porta San Pancrazio thus becomes, in a privileged reading of the historical monuments of the Janiculum.
Busts, paintings, prints and relics of Garibaldi, and a rich multimedia device, guide the visitors to discover the places, dates and main protagonists of the events of those years of enormous political commotion.
Room after room is possible to follow the developments that led to the European movements of 1848 and the liberal phase of Pius IX; Pope fled to Gaeta and the proclamation of the Roman Republic until its tragic end in July 1849, following the heaviest fighting when the Roman soldiers are against the overwhelming forces of the French army.
The tour ends showing the continuity of the Garibaldiās tradition, who participated gloriously in defense of the Republic, and also was the protagonist of a lot of history of the twentieth century.
