The 9/11 memorial
The city of Milan has dedicated a street to the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attack. It is called “Largo Vittime dell’11 settembre” (Victims of the 11th of September square). The largo features a sculpture by artist Bernard Roig which pays tribute to all the victims of terrorism. It was officially inaugurated on the 11th of September 2012 and in that occasion the US Consul General said:
“This moving gesture by the city of Milan demonstrates that, after that tragedy, the friendship between Italy and the United States has strengthened”
