A gesture that is causing discussion, a clear stance. The Jewish Community of Rome will not be present at the laying of the first stone of the Shoah Museum, announced by the Mayor Virginia Raggi in a post on social media. “The concomitance with the electoral campaign makes a ceremony inappropriate for a project that should have been inaugurated years ago” is the explanation to Ansa of the members of the aggregation.
“Memory is an essential value that must unite the city of Rome and not lend itself to electoral leadership. For for this reason the Community will not participate in the event, as in any other public event of an electoral nature ». The museum should have opened in 2008. A continuous shift in dates for the Holocaust memorial, which will be born inside Villa Torlonia a few hundred meters from the house that belonged to Benito Mussolini and should have been inaugurated, as a second chance, by October 2010. But nothing came of it.

Now the announcement of the laying of the first stone, inside Villa Torlonia. And the position of the Community.
