memoriale italiano

Memoriale delle Deportazioni

The Italian Memorial was wanted, designed and placed in Block 21 of the Auschwitz camp by the Anned (National Association of ex-deportees in the Nazi camps) thanks to the collaboration of an exceptional group of intellectuals among whom the names of the architects Lodovico and Alberico Belgiojoso stood out, by the writer Primo Levi, by the film director Nelo Risi, by the painter Pupino Samonà and by the composer Luigi Nono who produced one of the first multimedia installations in the world.

Set up in Auschwitz in 1979 and inaugurated the following spring, dismantled in 2014, it found its location in Florence in EX3. Aned took charge of designing and creating a first exhibition on the history of the memory of the Italian deportation over the decades, which is now visible on the ground floor of the structure.
