The care of Memory: the Monument Museum to the Deported, Remembrance and Warning

January 27 - May 1, 2024

On the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Monument Museum (October 14, 1973), the Fossoli Foundation retraces the history of its creation in an exhibition. Starting from why it was chosen to be in Carpi, the exhibition reconstructs the cultural and civil atmosphere in which its conception matured, showcasing the artistic quality of the intellectuals who contributed in various ways to the design of this still so contemporary work of art. The exhibition includes four main sections that address, in order, the origins of the Museum, the competition and the submitted projects, the realization of the Museum, the connections between the various artists involved in its creation, and the inauguration.
