A red container to protect THE RED TENT

The Red Container


From 15th February 2023 for the 70th anniversary of the National Museum of Science and Technology Leonardo Da Vinci, the famous Red Tent, after a long restoration, will be visible to the public. This tent gave shelter for 48 days to survivors of the Italian airship crashed on the pack ice for a storm during the expedition to the North Pole led by Umberto Nobile and left Milan in 1928.

Xilografia has designed and built the Red Container that contains it and will preserve it over time.
