    The project is born from the idea of the City of Milan to give a space to the Milanese associations that, in spite of their difference in origin and specific objectives,  share a common target of endorsing and building up the collective memory of Milan.

    The inspirational principles behind the National Association of Italian Partigiani (A.N.P.I.), National Association of Ex Deportees (ANED), the National Institute for the History of the Movement of Liberation (INSMLI) or the Italian Association for Victims of Terrorism (AIVITER) is in fact to fight against collective amnesia, maintaining and augmenting the recollection of the political and violent events that have lacerated Milan’s – and Italy’s – history during the last 60 years.
