This book takes inspiration from one of the most significant matter of debate of the recent years, that is to say the role of memory connected with Conflict Heritage. Linked as they are to unpleasant stories, they represent a patrimony that is difficult to manage. However, we believe they have the potential to resonate beyond their local contexts and work toward the construction of a collective identity on a European scale. This book presents a critical anthology of essays for the first time grouped in according to three main topics, archaeology, art and museography, and offers different approaches and new perspectives on the theme of Conflict Heritage.
With contributions, among others, by Sharon Macdonald, Ian Chambers, Marek Jasinsky, Luca Basso Peressut, Elisabetta Terragni.
