ROME’S STUMBLING STONES

Also known as the “Memory Stones”, these bronze pebbles embedded in the cobblestone are a very different kind of Holocaust memorial, marking the specific name and date of birth/ death of the victims. There are more than 60,000 of the tiny brass squares around Europe, part of a larger project started by German artist Gunter Demning. Rome counts about 200 of them, equally distributed in the center of the city as well in the outskirts.
