I nodi della memoria.
Concezioni e pratiche della memoria nel periodo borromaico

We live in a historical time dominated by the hypertrophy of the present: the recognition of the importance and of the functions of memory can help us find a balanced relationship with both the past and the future and therefore to re-establish a more human experience of temporality in everyday life.

The other faces of the Ambrosiana
