This "Aperitivo with Monte Cassino History" is a "finger food dinner of delicious local products" (in Italy we say "aperi-cena") with a unique experience in which I like to interact in order to exchange and offer historical information, answer any questions and illustrate focal points regarding some sites of the battle of Cassino with a lot of interesting maps and pictures and original information not easy to find in the classic tourist itinerary, wich give very different perspectives of the battlefield.

I was born in a "family hotel" and over the years I have been able to collect many stories about the Battle of Cassino that have left to me by the relatives of soldiers and many historians that stayed in my hotel. I became very knowledgable and I'm really enthusiast to share these experiences, giving life to a live storytelling that can be relive it, starting from the little museum in my hotel and going through the same places where all happened. I will let you discover my territory by following the signs left by history through the paths that were the scenery of that long battle of 1944.
