Description

The Mausoleum of the Fosse Ardeatine was created in memory of the cruel massacre perpetrated by the Nazis in Rome on March 24 1944. It was formally inaugurated in 1949 on the fifth anniversary of the strage. The monument is remarkably eloquent with the simplicity and austerity of its architecture. It embraces in a single complex the caves in which the massacre was consumed; the Mausoleum, where the bodies are collected; the sculptural group, summarizing expressively the tragedy of the 335 martyrs.
