Project Brief

Memoria e Luce is a memorial in Padua, Italy for victims of the 9/11 attacks on New York City. The memorial is designed as an open and luminous book, featuring anorginal twisted steel beam salvaged from the wreckage of the World Trade Center that was donated by the US to the Veneto Region, and in turn to the city of Padua. The memorial was completed in September 2005 in collaboration with Permasteelisa.
