MVPA member Filippo Spadi of Scarperia, Italy helped to facilitate the opening of a MVPA consulate in Italy. The office is located inside the Gotica Toscana Center of Documentation and Historic Research. Volunteers will support and promote MVPA membership and activities in Italy and abroad.
The Gotica Toscana is a non-profit, non political, Italian military history association whose mission is to record the history and memory of WWII events. It is located near the former Gothic Line, the last Axis fortified line of defense in Italy. This is where many armies fought for months during 1944-45, including the U.S. 5th Army.
