Museums at Limone sul Garda
Following construction of the Gardesana road (1929-1931), which permitted transportation between Limone, Gargnano and Riva, Limone became one of the most frequented tourist centres of Lake Garda in the second half of the twentieth century. Many different factors influenced the development of the town: its position on the lake, the morphology of the territory, the characteristic conformation of the historical centre, the climatic conditions, the activism of the inhabitants and the attention of the public administration. In slightly less than fifty years, camping grounds and boarding homes were opened, followed by the birth of inns, hotels, apartments, residences, bars, restaurants and shops, which transformed the face of the town and the life of the people. Tourism, almost solely foreign tourism, is practically the only economic activity of Limone today. Precisely for the purpose of collecting documents, images, testimony, which in any way refer to the birth and development of tourism, the municipal administration has promoted the establishment of the Tourist Museum, in the former Municipal Office, in Via Comboni 3. In particular, the research and collection of documentation includes posters, brochures, price lists, films, photographs, postcards, newspaper articles, advertising insertions, calendars of events, statistics, books, travel guides, letters and souvenirs. Particular attention is also paid to the discovery of Apolipoprotein A1 Milano and Saint Daniele Comboni, whose was born in Limone.
