THE DIGITAL MAP

    OF STUMBLING STONES

             IN TRIESTE (2018-2021)

Work done by dr. Matteo Alvino during his internship at the Museum, as part of the Master in Public & Digital History at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.

Starting from 2018, Trieste has finally begun to host in its streets an increasing number of Stumbling Stones, the small monuments that the German artist Gunter Demnig has created to remember all those who have suffered deportation due to Nazi-Fascist persecution.

The inscriptions, at the request of the descendants, are prepared by the Jewish Community of Trieste with the help of various scholars, organizations, associations and research institutes, such as the Centro di Documentazione Ebraica Contemporanea di Milano – CDEC and the National Association of Ex Deportees of Trieste – ANED.

The installations take place thanks to the collaboration of the Municipality of Trieste and the authorization of the Soprintendenza Archeologia, Belle Arti e Paesaggio del Friuli Venezia Giulia. Schools such as the Liceo Classico Linguistico F. Petrarca  and the Istituto Tecnico Statale G. Deledda – M. Fabiani actively participate in the initiative.

The online map will be made available to everyone on this website and constantly updated: on 10 January 2022 another twenty stones will be added to the sixty-three already laid down to date.

The event will take place both in our conference room (with green pass) and online on the platform Zoom
