What you'll do

How would you feel in the shoes of a detective moving trough history on the shores of Como Lake? While going around in the powerful and wonderful scenary of Tremezzina, we'll recollect the last hours of Benito Mussolini, the "Resistenza", with the struggle of the partisans, and the end of World War Two in Italy with the Liberation from fascism. We'll deal with all the misteries surrounding the seizure and the execution of “ Il Duce”, not least the disappearing of the so called "treasure of Dongo" and the sensitive documents he exchanged with Winston Churchill. In a sort of "on the field" investigation we'll re experience these pivotal events with a detailed and accurate historical reconstruction based on the localities we’ ll visit. We'll account for all the still opened historical questions about the true destiny of Mussolini, the modality of his death and the fate of the gold, money and documents he carried with him. We'll visit the “End of the War Museum” and end our tour in Giulino di Mezzegra where the destiny of Mussolini was brought to a close.

Thereafter Mezzegra: first to Casa De Maria, where the dictator spent the last hours, then in front of the gate of " Villa Belmonte" where Mussolini was executed. Optional Q&A in aTremezzo brewery, at that times a notorious local's hangout
