The Visitor Centre, where you can find information on World War I monuments and memorials of the Walk of Peace Veneto segment, is hosted by the Museo della Bonifica (MUB) in San Donà di Piave. The MUB collections outline many important elements for the history of the town and its surroundings, with the focus on the topic of land reclamation, which represents one of the most determining factors for the development of the territory. The section dedicated to World War I addresses the issue of the military conflict in a drainage area, including a display of weapons, remnants found in the trenches along the river Piave, as well as some officer uniforms and other materials belonging to the Austro-Hungarian and the Italian Armies. A specific part of the exhibition refers to the flying ace of the Italian Air Force Giannino Ancillotto, born in San Donà, decorated with the Gold Medal, remembered for his daring and heroic deeds. Moreover, thanks to the collaboration in the cross-border Interreg V-A Italy-Slovenia WALKofPEACE project, part of the exhibition offers additional multimedia content that the visitors can access via an app, making the visit even more interesting.
The Museum also provides a library, documentary and photo archives, a conference room, an audiovisual room, classrooms, and a bookshop.
