“Tragedy remembered”

Museo per la Memoria di Ustica
Ranked #5 of 335 things to do in Bologna
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 December 2012

This memorial of the mysterious plane crash near the island of Ustica is very well curated and presented as to linger for a long time in one's conscience. The remains of the actual fuselage have been meticulously collected from the ocean floor to be displayed in the center of the hall that was built specifically to house it. Surrounded by 81 black glass panes that represent all the lost souls of this flight. Behind each pane is a loudspeaker from which voices that say arbitrary things that might have been the thoughts of the victims, together with the wreckage becomes an eerie experience. Perhaps not suitable for children.

There's also a small room showing a brief documentary about the realization of the memorial itself and some computers that show news reels and other related information.

Sadly, no information is available in English making this memorial and museum a wholly Italian experience.

There are no words to explain the sensation you'll have visiting this museum. this big plane lying on the floor, the recorded voices of the death passengers, the lights bulb switching on and off. just go there and remind what happened.
