  • Sounds haunting with the voices. Reminder how precious life is. Free entry and toilet facilities. Disabled access.
  • Very evocative museum about a plane crash that was never explained. This museum was taken down by a missile on its way to Sicily, and it seems to have come from Italy itself. The government has never clarified what happened. The association of the victims' families opened this museum, called Museum of Memory, to remember their struggle from truth and remembrance. French artist Christian Boltanski created this exhibit, with 81 lightbulbs that go on and off and 81 mirrors to remember the victims. The sound system repeats done phrases, daily concern, to represent the victims.
