Firefighters' Gallery


Mantova Museo Urbano Diffuso

Mantova Museo Urbano Diffuso

Today's visitor is fascinated by the combination of the great ancient spaces, naked in the appearance of the brick wall, and the fire-red cars that, since the nineteenth century, were used to fight the frequent fires. In the two main galleries of the museum, they are arranged in an orderly manner, accompanied by explanatory plaques that document the evolution of efficiency aimed at rapid intervention, using increasingly accurate construction techniques. From the earliest wooden artifacts, carts or modified carriages, we move on to the twentieth century production: in the post-war period a large set of machinery was designed to bring help as soon as possible. There is no shortage of helicopters, numerous motorcycles, some velocipedes, as well as the presentation of uniforms, helmets, lamps and tools of different types.
