  • Museum a few steps from the station of Bologna, it is easily reached even on foot in just over 10 minutes, with free admission. I recommend seeing the short-lived documentary first. The wreck of the plane, the black crates, the 81 light bulbs that light up intermittently, the black mirrors on the walls with the last thoughts whispered by the passengers and crew members..... strike direct to the heart, impossible not to be moved, Ask questions and still questions and be afraid of the obvious answers about life, friends, allies....

  • The "experiential visits" can not be told, must be tried, must be lived, must be HEARD. So tell you that the installation is very nice and will make you think long about the lability of life and how sometimes unexpected things happen I think is superfluous. Just as needless to emphasize the importance of memory, especially when it comes to disasters like this on which it still discusses. I will therefore only advise you to go there, because it is only 10 minutes walk from the station, because you do not pay to enter, because it will require little time and because it would be a pity to visit Bologna without dedicating a moment to reflect, admire, live and feel An experience like this.
