This looks at San Lorenzo, a district bounded on all four sides,
first developed and settled in 1884-6.
history is punctuated by various events which have left visible remains,
like a series of archaeological strata, on the built environment,
including the events of 1943 (the Allied bombing on 19 July and the
deportation of Jews by the SS on 16-18 October), the extreme left
politics of the 1970s and the recent episodes of neo-fascist racist
This study investigates:
legacy of these events in places, individual memories and public
forms of memory related to the social and demographic changes in
the district over three generations.
