"This was the Rome-Fiuggi rail line. My father wanted to keep alive the memory of this major line, also because the only section of track that remains is this one in the museum – it is about 600 meters of track. I am the grandson of Ettore Arena who was the station master for over thirty years. Then, my father, Giuseppe Arena, founded the museum. In 2006, he realized his dream of making a museum in the station where his father had worked. It should be said that this rail line was closed in 1983 and work began in 2006. It was opened to the public in 2008 and in the last two years we have also received help from the Province of Rome department that deals with museums. In essence, all the railway facilities remain, including the station, the station master’s office, waiting room and workshop. On the upper floor are the living quarters, and what was the home of the station master's family has been turned into a museum. The floor above this includes scenes that actually took place during World War II, because in 1944 the station was along the line to Cassino and, as a result, a floor of the station was occupied by German troops.” "36 years: I began in Genazzano. Then I took the exam at the railway workers’ association to become a station master and I began working as a station master. The fact is this: if the railway that existed then had been a person, it would have deserved a gold medal for what it did. During the war, it allowed many people fleeing Rome during the bombing to survive. Here they stocked up. They arrived on specially-scheduled trains to collect chestnuts in the woods around Rocca Priora, or fruit in Genazzano."
