The Casa della Memoria e della Storia remembers the Allied bombing of the Roman quarter S. Lorenzo with an exhibition on the 70th anniversary of the event. On 19 July 1943 Allied aeroplanes launched a sustained attack on the S. Lorenzo area – adjacent to the capital's main train station – causing thousands of civilian casualties and widespread structural damage. A month later Rome was declared an open city. The exhibition comprises a selection of archive photographs, papers and newspaper cuttings documenting the S. Lorenzo bombing and its catastrophic aftermath. Free entry. Casa della Memoria e della Storia, Via S. Francesco di Sales 5, tel. 060608.
