Museum of the Nobel Dynamite Factory
It is located on Via Galinié in Avigliana and it opened in 2002. It is the only museum of its type. Its interactive itinerary offers videos, documents, explanatory panels, photos and the machinery used for producing the explosives, and the visit into the recovered plants allows visitors to become absorbed in the reality of the factory. Sound effects and reproductions give a very realistic idea of the dangerousness and the difficulties in the life of the workers. The Nobel Dynamite Factory is a part of the collective memory not only of the Avigliana area, and attests the social and productive changes over the years. It is also possible to visit the reproduction of an air-raid shelter, where some sound effects make visitors experience a moving bombardment of the World War II.
