What Milan is is memory

“Milan is memory” is the platform of the Municipality of Milan which collects a message that comes from the city and which the municipal administration intends to continue to spread and strengthen.

"If understanding is impossible, knowing is necessary, because what has happened can return, consciences can once again be seduced and obscured: even ours". Primo Levi he spoke thus about memory and the need, every day, to keep it alive. Because memory is the only antidote we have to avoid making tragic mistakes again.

These pages will contain the events organized in the city that contribute to cultivating historical and critical memory, both by the many associations, by the cultural institutions, and by the municipalities and the municipal administration.

"Senza memoria non c'è future” is our message, which comes from the awareness that memory is a gear that needs oiling, which speaks of the present and the future, not just the past. Memory is the strongest tool we have to avoid the mistakes of the past and to enhance the common fabric and shared values ​​of the city.
