Memorial Day Exclusive: Get insider access to a World War II museum in Italy with a history expert.
Join Gianni, a historian and honorary member of the First Special Service Force Association, for this one-day-only Online Escape.
Together, you’ll explore the Museo del Secondo Risorgimento, a World War II history museum outside of Monte Cassino—site of one of the war’s greatest Allied victories.
Gianni has a deep connection to the region he’ll be livestreaming from at the base of Monte la Difensa. He’ll transport you back to 1943–1944, when a well-constructed and fortified system of Axis defensive lines stretched across central Italy, from sea to sea, to stop the Allied advance.
You’ll hear how the First Special Service Force, known as the Devil's Brigade, fought in battles along the Winter Line as Gianni shares stories and memorabilia. Discover how the bravery and sacrifices of this elite American-Canadian commando unit ultimately led to the Allied liberation of Rome on June 4, 1944.
This Memorial Day-only Online Escape will give you the opportunity to reflect on the past and honor those who've lost their lives while serving in the US military.
