Expo Risorgimento features about a thousand objects, from the early 1700s up to 1870.

The most important material – in addition to relics from the battlefield – includes the flag of the National Guard of Novara from 1848, the flag of the “Società di Mutuo Soccorso” (Mutual Aid Association), established in 1852, the original death mask of Cavour, equipment of the Piedmontese and Austrian armies, and lithographs of places and people.
