The Museum of the Landing in Sicily - 1943 in Catania is dedicated to the historical event, during the Second World War, which started Sicily and all of Italy towards liberation from German occupation.
On 10 July 1943, the Americans and the British landed in the eastern part of Sicily near Gela and the coast of August respectively. The allies occupied all of western Sicily, while in the east the British and Canadians met the brunt of German resistance. The Museum traces the stages of the war clashes that took place above all in western Sicily such as Gela, Augusta, Agira, Floridia, Troina, Ponte di Primo Sole, Catania, Messina. It constitutes a living and concrete testimony of what happened in Sicily; conceived and wanted so as not to forget what has been.
