Guided Tour of the Mausoleum of the Fosse Ardeatine

3 Feb. This tour, for children aged ten and older and their families, proposes a visit through this magnificent, though simple and austere, mausoleum.

The tour includes a visit of the caves, site of this terrifying massacre, of the mausoleum, where the bodies of 335 martyrs were collected, and of the museum, which displays reliefs, documents and photographs of this tragic period of history. The museum also hosts some works by Mirko Basaldella Renato Guttuso, Corrado Cagli, Carlo Levi and Francesco Coccia, which commemorate the massacre. This event wants to remind the public not to forget this very tragic event. The Fosse Ardeatine massacre was a mass execution carried out in Rome on 24 March 1944 by German occupation troops during world war two as a reprisal for a partisan attack conducted on the previous day in central Rome. The Ardeatine Caves site was subsequently declared a Memorial Cemetery and National Monument.

Open daily to visitors.
