Other Identification: “114” and German crosses painted on superstructure sides. Painted overall in a three colour camouflage scheme.

This Semovente was manufactured at the beginning of 1944 under German control, then issued to a German unit, probably Panzerjager-Abteilung 236 (also known as Sturmgeschutz-Abteilung 1236) of 162nd Infanterie-Division. In September 1944 the division transferred its remaining Semovente to 1st Fallschirmjager-Division. This unit fought in the outskirts of Rimini where the vehicle was sabotaged and abandoned. The wreck was buried in a crater and remained concealed until it was discovered in January 2000. The restoration was handled by the museum and lasted until 2004. (Source: D. Guglielmi). It was funded by the museum but the vehicle remains the property of the Municipality of Rimini.
