The area of Refugee Camp Padriciano was used, after its disposal, for different interim uses. It must be remembered the time when deposits hosted in the early '90s, the collection of trucks of the Civic War Museum for Peace "Diego de Henriquez" in Trieste.

Certainly the most unusual use of the former refugee camp was the realization of the movie set for the italian film "Soldati, 365 all'alba" (Soldiers, 365 days at dawn).

The film, directed by Dino Risi on a subject of Marco Modugno, was released in Italian cinemas in 1987 and counts among interpreters Massimo Dapporto, Claudio Amendola, Claudio Botosso, Ugo Conti and other Italian characteristics. Many of the scenes of life in the barracks were shot in both indoor and outdoor in the CRP Padriciano and also in the pavilion which now houses the Museum.
