“Do not allow a chance to the enemy. Continue to fight until final victory.”
Luigi Longo (March 1900-1980), Commander in Chief Italian Resistance 1943-1945
Bologna was a center for the Italian Resistance, first against Italy’s Fascist government, then against the Nazi occupation.
Opposite Palazzo di Re Enzo, which is reflected in the monument’s glass (see photos #4 & #5), a simple tribute to Bologna’s Resistance fighters, more than 1,800 of whom were put to death by the Nazi SS, has been created on a wall of Palazzo Comunale.
Initially black and white photos were posted on the wall informally by the victims’ relatives at the end of the Second World War. Now this sacrario, shrine, is a collection of 2,052 tiles printed with portraits and names.
Address: Piazza Nettuno
