February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

These photos tell the story of General Clark's entrance into Rome. It explains how his motorcade made a wrong turn and ended up at St. Peter's Square before arriving at his destination at the Campidoglio Hill for the welcome ceremony.

On display there are many photographs from newspapers and magazines from the United States, Europe, and even the Vatican newspaper. They all announce the arrival of Allied troops.

"This picture shows the very center of town, behind me here is the Palazzo Chigi, a building which was then the headquarters of the Foreign Ministry, when a column of Italian troops from Naples, re-entered for the first time with the people of Rome celebrating.”

The exhibit is divided into different sections such as recently discovered colored photos. Other sections are dedicated to Americans, British, and other members of the Allied forces. These photos  remember Jewish soldiers who fought to liberate Rome and many of whom met at the local Synagogue.

Many of the American soldiers that helped to liberate Rome found a special homecoming.

"There was immediately also this sympathy especially among Italians and U.S. soldiers. It's also worth remembering that many soldiers from the United States were also Italian or were the children of Italians who immigrated to the US.” 

The 'The Liberation of Rome' has been visited by hundreds of tourists everyday as they pass by the different fountains and historic buildings. 

The exhibit has also helped to remember one of the most important days in the history of Rome and one that shaped the future of the city.
