Place of memory located in the building where Fissan was born in 1930. Right in the house inhabited by Osiris Brovedani, which has become a museum, the memories of an incredible life come to life, made up of brilliant intuitions, difficult moments to forget and great generosity. Those on display are not just memories of the past and objects in the window, but contain a concentration of stories and experiences, even tragic ones, which serve to solicit fundamental questions about the identity of people, to add stories and reflections to our knowledge, such as stimulus to the exercise of solidarity and good will. The memory of the past is essential to live the present with greater awareness. It is necessary to remember the Nazi tragedy, together with the other episodes of extermination of the 20th century, to be able to recognize the ideological, nationalist and racial drift and restrain it in the bud.
