This section introduces the theme of navigation and displays the Museum’s relics together with those of the Milan Didactic Naval Civic Museum. Here are some of the most striking historical objects of the museum’s collections: the brig schooner Ebe (1921) and the command bridge of the transatlantic liner Conte Biancamano (1925). The bow of the Stella Polare (Polar Star) ship tells us of the first expeditions to the North Pole. Some assault crafts used during the world wars, among which the Maiale (“pig” as the manned slow-speed torpedoes were known), show the courage of the seamen. The history of the great battles is told through the models of reknown sailing vessels for their achievements. The Air & Water Transport Building also hosts a collection of figureheads, objects and books on naval matters donated by the Milanese editor Ugo Mursia.
