Shoah Memorial
by SET Architects

Bologna inaugurated the memorial on January 27, 2016, the day dedicated to the memory of the Shoah victims in Italy.

Contemporary architecture has played an important role in the honour of jewish memory. Beyond Peter Eisenman’s famous memorial in Berlin, we can find recent examples in Libeskind’s National Holocaust Monument in Ottawa and the Holocaust Memorial in London, designed by David Adjaye.

The memorial takes on life and evokes the drama of the memory.
