  • The camp in Fossoli concentration camp and POW camp was located in the town. Used by the Italian Social Republic and then directly by the SS as the main concentration camp and transit for deportation to Germany of Jews and political opponents. Original field today remained only the walls of barracks and the location of the facilities. On 25 April 2017, on the occasion of the Liberation Day, the camp was visited by President Sergio Mattarella who visited the barracks and gave a speech in front of the population agreed.

  • Field only to transit to the major extermination camps (Auschwitz, Buchenwald, Bergen Belsen), it remains in memory of a very black period in our history. The earthquake damaged several buildings already has unfortunately further crumbling 2012, of which there is a strenuous restoration. Worth the visit, pausing to read information panels about the life in the field during and after the war. A life lesson.

  • I have been to visit the former concentration camp in Fossoli, the only present on Italian territory, and I believe it is essential, if you reside in the area or for those who spend over there, spend some of his time to his visit. It started from the time the task of retrieving what was once the barracks where the prisoners were held here at Fossoli were just passing through, as they were destined to try much more notorious as the German and Polish death camps. In the middle of the field was completely rebuilt a shack which now houses a small museum that shows the history of the field. A large model show were its actual size and various photos and documents are reminiscent of the inmates who were housed at Fossoli, such as Primo Levi. As had happened to me during my visit to Dachau, even here I could appreciate the silence that accompanies the tour, as if to underline the sacredness of this place that has witnessed countless hardships for those who stayed.

  • Unfortunately the place abandoned stesso...in ruin ... a piece of history that you are destroying. Can arrange a guided tour with a video projection by reservation by contacting the site. Heartening to know that in the program there is renovation.
