The reconstruction
Weapons used by the department usually embarked on galleys

The first full-scale reconstruction visitors come across during their visit is the Armeria della Darsena which houses armour, helmets and weapons that were used by the military unit which usually embarked on the galleys.

Protected by wooden and iron gates and guarded by two “galley soldiers”, helmets, armour and cold steel weapons are still perfectly arranged on the rack, as though time has stood still. Still clearly visible on the body armour and the helmets are both the shots made to check their resistance before use and the marks suffered in combat.
