Concordia Lighthouse Memorial

our tribute and proposed memorial to the victims of the Concordia shipwreck off Giglio island in the Tyrrenhian Sea, Italy, on January 13, 2012. The ascent through this tower weaves through darkness and light, to signify the loss and hope that memory brings. the grounds are covered in poppies with canopied pavilions to sit beneath and heal.

A visitor center at the base explains the story of this tragic shipwreck and commemorates all the names of those lost to us.
