Day of Remembrance 2021

For the Italian Memorial in the Polo della Memoria in Florence

Webinar January 27, 2021 at 9.30 am

The SAGAS Department of the University of Florence , the Memofonte Foundation onlus and the Politecnico di Milano propose a webinar dedicated to the Italian Memorial of Auschwitz , a multimedia work, commissioned by the National Association of former deportees in 1979 and initially installed in the former camp of extermination. The work, designed thanks to the collaboration of the BBPR studio with the writer Primo Levi, the director Nelo Risi, the painter Mario Pupino Samonà and the composer Luigi Nono, in May 2019 found a new home in Florence, at the Ex3 Center of Gavinana.

The webinar aims to continue the discourse started with the first study seminar of 25 May 2019 on the pedagogical and didactic potential of the rearrangement of the Memorial and, more generally, on the themes of the conservation of memory, its dissemination and the enhancement of its sources. These issues take on particular relevance in the current moment of closure of the places of culture and solicit a reflection on ways of virtual access to contents and their elaboration, not merely in an emergency perspective.

Retracing the results of the first seminar and the in-depth analysis that found space in the dossier, the Italian Memorial of Auschwitz in the Florentine Pole of Memory, to be published in the next issue of the “Bulletin of the Florentine Studies Society”, a survey of the archival and printed materials (textual, visual and musical) will be made, which can be virtually or concretely reconnected to the Memorial, to open a reflection on ways to enhance the significance of the Memorial online (through exhibitions or virtual itineraries).
