Anyone wanting to discuss this feel free, I'd be especially interested to know more about how the Italian states were involved.

But here's a fun video featuring the brilliant work of Keith Rocco, who a couple of years ago completed a commission for the refurbished Marengo museum. Another artist who collaborated in the event was Christa Hook.

And the collection itself.

Yeah I was wondering about that Breech, just what are we going for here...

Merengo is all farmland etc, the new museum is supposed to be excellent.

This is the Marengo museum site http://www.marengomuseum.it/?page_id=562 - although I suppose this really ought to be in the Second Coalition section!
