Learn about the Zouaves and their military exploits. This fascinating museum displays unique objects and writings that were important to the Zouaves.
Who were the Zouaves?
The Zouaves were volunteers that defended the Papal States against the Italian nationalists in the period between 1861 and 1870. They were particularly known for their baggy uniform trousers. The word zouave originated in Algeria, where the French army incorporated Zwawa Berber tribes. In French, the name of the tribe became corrupted into “zouave”.
