Gariwo (the Garden of the Righteous in the World) is the place to commemorate people who opposed the violence of wars and persecution based on ethnic and religious differences. Starting with the memory of the Shoah, Gariwo extends its recognition of the ‘righteous’ to the heroes of today. How do you design the Garden of the Righteous? Art, landscape and architecture are the areas in which to choose examples to organise the new Garden on Monte Stella, in Milan. The issues of design are neverending: the impossibility of finishing the list of the righteous; the figure, which image can interpret good in a contemporary sense; the word, how to recount the contents that it is wished to conserve in the garden; the movement, connected with an idea of knowledge as change, evolution, a path.

Keywords: Garden; memory; monument
