Italy's first Holocaust museum to be built in Rome


Mayor of Rome Gianni Alemanno has announced plans to construct Italy's first Holocaust museum, to be built in Rome as the focal point in the 10-year "Stati Generali" plan for major projects in the city. The museum will be built in the central area of Villa Torlonia and will lie adjacent to both Benito Mussolini's villa and the 2,000 year old Jewish catacombs. The catacombs, now closed, will be restored and open for visits as well.
