House of Memory

Overview

A centre of democracy, culture and freedom

The House of Memory of Milan is located in the Isola district, was inaugurated in 2015 and hosts associations that are responsible for preserving the memory of the city such as the National Association ex-deported to Nazi camps, the Italian Association of Victims of Terrorism, the National Association Partisans of Italy, the Association Piazza Fontana and the National Institute Ferruccio Parri.

The building was built between 2013 and 2015 to activate a center dedicated to the values of freedom and democracy for which the city of Milan has always fought, also deserving the Gold Medal for military valor.

It is built of polychrome bricks designed by the Baukuh studio and is an important public space that hosts free cultural events, exhibitions, shows, research and training activities. The external facades are covered with images that show decisive moments in the history of the twentieth century and the faces of 19 anonymous Milanese citizens, representing the multifaceted face of the city.

The bricks have been specially produced in shades of different colors to reproduce the photographs depicted on the facade and refer to historical buildings typical of the city. The interior is divided into three parts: from the ground floor you can access the upper floors through a large yellow screw staircase.
