The Casa della Resistenza in Fondotoce (Verbania)

The Casa della Resistenza in Fondotoce di Verbania is a multipurpose structure used by the adjacent Parco della Memoria e della Pace, a symbol of the sacrifice paid by the Resistance to win freedom. Forty-two partisans were shot down here on 20 June 1944; monuments have been erected here over time to commemorate those who died in the fight for freedom, the Jews killed by the Nazis and Fascists, the political and racial deportees, the military internees, the foreign soldiers who joined the ranks of the Italian resistance.

The Casa is managed by a free Association that aims to keep alive the memory and meaning of that sacrifice through numerous cultural activities and meetings, by promoting ethical and civil tourism and enhancing the places of memory in the area of Verbano Cusio Ossola.
It is possible, especially for schools, to use services and opportunites for visiting, studying and learning at the Casa, which is being reorganised as a multimedia history Centre.
