    Very touching experience. Allows you to experience the Ustica tragedy with emotional involvement. Surprising for its ability to explore the story without sentimentality but with sensitivity

    Cristian Boltanski is the artist who is addoperato to build this museum. A museum that leaves, you wouldn't know it existed but which is good as it gets. Touching.

  • Interesting to see the aircraft "rebuilt" and the mirrors and light bulbs are a fitting tribute to those who died.
  • Amazing, haunting experience
  • Worth spending few minutes there
  • NICE BUT at least a pack a pair of shoes a hat under plexiglass and even a seat and the carpet ... I know you have been recovered but what happened?? Li of the plane there is only the fuselage (without aircraft identification number) and movies (very long and very hard) in a small cramped ... Ah some audio panels weren't working. I'm pretty sure this ... otherwise ok.

  • Art installation successful and effective. Communicates without rhetoric the grief of a massacre. Ben also made the media room for the historical content. Worth a visit if you're passing to the Bolognina.
