The 3,24 mq artwork by Francesco Arena – exhibited in the heart of the museum, in the Gallery that hosts the Permanent Collection – is a full-scale reproduction of the narrow space where Aldo Moro was held prisoner for 55 days, starting from 16th March 1978. On the occasion of the 40th anniversary, both the artist and former magistrate Luciano Violante will meet the public to remember that tragic page of Italian history and describe the artwork, its message and the reasoning behind it.
