Museum to the Deported
The collection of the Museum of the Deported, a thousand pieces in all, can be summarized in three groups. The first dates back to the establishment of the Museum (late 1960s) when many ex deportees donated objects, documents, diaries and testimonies relating to the camps. A second nucleus collects the design material relating to the Deported Museum, in particular the competition that saw the winner of the BBPR studio in Milan.
The last nucleus, acquired more recently, is constituted by the donation that the Modenese painter Alberto Cavallari made of about fifty of his watercolor drawings made during his imprisonment. Similar to this, in 1999 the important nucleus of the drawings that the Milanese Aldo Carpi made during his imprisonment in the Gusen camp was added, which also accompanied the recently republished "Diary".
