Risorgimento Museum

The museum was founded in 1888, when Piero Maroncelli (1795-1846) donated relics and documents on his life and political activity to the Municipality of Forlì. The museum was further enriched by donations from other citizens of Forlì. On the first floor there are objects that belonged to some of the most important protagonists of the National Risorgimento and numerous testimonies concerning the voluntary and Garibaldian “vocation” of the people of Forlì. Besides the memorabilia of Maroncelli, affiliated to the Carboneria and imprisoned together with Silvio Pellico, there are memories of Aurelio Saffi (1819-1890), illustrious citizen of Forlì, patriot, journalist and influential Italian politician, of Achille Cantoni (1835-1867), volunteer very close to Giuseppe Garibaldi, and other materials related to important personalities such as Carlo Matteucci (1811-1868), physicist of international fame, as well as Minister of Education of the Kingdom of Italy, Giovita Lazzarini (1813-1849) Minister of Justice of the Roman Republic and Antonio Fratti (1845-1897) volunteer in the military expedition commanded by Ricciotti Garibaldi, Giuseppe’s son, who defended Greece in the Greek-Turkish war.
