Bologna Bombing

Bologna was the victim of a bombing on August 2, 1980, which killed 85 and wounded more than two hundred. A crater left by the bomb remains in the waiting room along with images of the disaster, and a shattered wall overlooking the tracks.  A clock on the platform is frozen at 10:25 a.m, the moment of the bomb explosion.   In the main square there is a large memorial on the side of the Sala Borsa, now a library and community center.  Images of each victim are there, with a title:  Victims of Fascist Terrorism.
