The Italian Garden and Arandora Star Memorial is the world’s largest permanent memorial to the
805 victims of the tragedy. The Garden is an enclosed space adjoining St Andrew’s Metropolitan Cathedral. A paved and grassed area contains a modern monument of large mirrored plinths inscribed with verses from the scriptures and Italian poets.
Visitors can wander through the construction – there is a water feature that runs through the centre of the garden and an olive tree symbolising peace
A plaque on the east wall of the garden lists the names of the 94 Italians from Scotland who died.
Italian Garden Improvement Group are committed to maintaining and improving the Italian Garden and Arandora Star Memorial.
