A poetic journey in which young people “lend their voice” to those who were subjected to Nazi persecution

A reading-cum-show produced by the pupils from the third-year classes of the Vittorio Alfieri 1st level secondary school in Rome, the conclusion of a project that has combined the geographical with the historical-cultural through the theatrical medium.

The students recount the history of this part of Rome in the years 1938-1945. Starting with the places of memory in Rome – the Porticus Octaviae, the Synagogue, the Military College, Tiburtina Station – the young people have gathered materials, first-hand testimonies, historical documents, personal reflections and the stories of their grandparents and acquaintances who lived through those years to recount one of the darkest chapters our recent history.
