Museo Nazionale Della Montagna “Duca degli Abruzzi”

Situated in Turin on Monte dei Cappuccini, the Museum commands splendid panoramic views of a large sweep of the Alps and the city of Turin below. It is not just a museum, but a veritable centre dedicated to the mountains, organized in three separate but complementary sections: one for temporary and permanent exhibitions, one for documentation, and one for meetings. Always attentive to mountain film – of which it has on extraordinary collection – it was one of the founder members of the IAMF, which was created in the Sala degli Stemmi of the Museum in 2000.
