“MAN’S BEST FRIEND – Warriors without uniform 100 years ago and today” The history of “Dog warriors” is retraced thanks to photographic panels and finds from the First World War period, since they were used by all the armies for the transport of carts containing food or ammunition, as well as for the research and rescue of wounded people on the battlefield and also for the rat extermination of the trenches. The dogs were real “soldiers without uniform”, going with the soldiers for some distances during their path, as mates of a difficult and demanding adventure. Even now, a hundred years after World War I, the dogs are trained to participate in police and military operations, as well as for the rescue of missing people after earthquakes, floods or avalanches. All in all, dogs save lives: in Visco it operates the association called ACDC (which stands for Addestramento Cani da Catastrofe Onlus), a non-profit association established in 2000 with the purpose of creating canine rescue units for the research of missing people. The exhibit, organized by the historian Lucio Fabi with the aid of Roberto Todero and design by Alfio Scarpa, has a particular section dedicated to the Gaspardis’, a family which has been in Visco with three generations of vets for 100 years. It will be still available the exhibit called “Un medico a Visco. Le fotografie del tenente Floriano Ferrazzi 1915-1917” (A doctor in Visco. The photographs of the lieutenant Florian Ferrazzi 1915-1917). THE MUSEUM ON THE BORDER OF THE FORMER AUSTRIAN CUSTOMS The building, built in 1866, right on the border between the Reign of Italy and the Habsburg Empire, from 1874 functioned as Austrian customs till the beginning of the World War I (1915), then as an Italian military hospital. After the War, added in the military area of Borgo Piave, it was headquarters of barracks, factories, offices of the Italian Army and, in the Second World War, from February to September 1943, it was also internment camp of civilians coming from Yugoslavian regions. After the end of the War, the building became headquarters of offices and military housing of the barracks named after Luigi Sbaiz till 1996. Property of the Municipality of Visco since 2001 and renovated after many years of abandon thanks to the contribution of Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, since 2016 it has hosted the Museo sul Confine (Museum on the border), dedicated to history of territory and local community, location of exhibits, meetings, cultural events.
