The town of Pieve Santo Stefano, also known as the City of the Diary, has a public archives in its town hall. The archives collect writings of common people, since 1984, in which everyone’s life and the history of Italy are reflected: they are diaries, letters, autobiographical memories. Forty years after the end of the war, in a wing of this building, a house of memory has risen: a public place to preserve writings of private memories. One of the most particular, is the memory of Clelia Marchi, a peasant woman who told her story by writing it on the sheet of a trousseau, more than 2 meters wide. “The sheets I can no longer consume them with her husband and so I thought of using them to write”. A work that has become symbolic for the Diary Archive and that you can visit.
