The House of Memory is the architectural symbol of a historical and civil consciousness characteristic of Milan. Its construction was supported by the municipality in order to provide headquarters for the principal associations involved in keeping alive the memory of the Resistance, the Liberation, and the foundation of the Italian Republic. Comprising essays and numerous architectural drawings, plus photographs by Stefano Graziani, this book describes in detail how a public work was funded using resources deriving from an urban intervention of a private nature while respecting both history and context, and developed and realised through a participatory approach.
