Monument dedicated to those who were deported during the Second World War and perished in the concentration camps. The monument inaugurated in 1987, was created by the artist from Salsomaggiore Aldo Menoni, (1928-2007). The artist chose geometric shapes and their spatial arrangement to convey the drama and tragedy of the deportees. Three large slabs of stone, resting on as many flat surfaces, are anchored together by a ring encircling their axis of intersection. The slabs represent the different countries of origin of the deportees; the ring, the link that binds them, symbolises their shared suffering. At the bottom, anchored to the ground, a headstone with barbed wire running through it respectfully concludes the tragic story of deportation.
In the foyer of the Town Hall there is a commemorative plaque dedicated to those who died in the struggle for freedom (1943-1945). In the last world war, Salsomaggiore played a significant role in the struggle for Liberation; the town was awarded the Bronze Medal for Military Valour.
