The Cell in Denver to fight terrorism with awareness

The CELL in Denver to fight terrorism with awareness is a one of a kind little museum, the only one in the world, a multisensory experience that leaves an impression.

We discovered it thanks to Visit Denver during our stay in the capital of Colorado on the occasion of the project and collaboration I already talked you about.

It’s a museum analysing in a scientific and the most apolitical and non-party possible way the phenomenon of terrorism.

It takes into consideration a problem that since time immemorial has been troubling the planet and against which exists no solution – it’s lapidary to say like that but unfortunately it’s true. It cannot be defeated!

We have to learn living together with it.

Immediately in the entrance we are enveloped by a sentence which gives the creep: nobody is either too young to be a victim of terrorism, or too young to be recruited.

International Terrorism history

Then it begins an overview of terrorism through centuries and history: from KKK to IRA in Ireland, to Basque Country to the Middle East…arriving to Twin Towers, of course.

Terrorism knows no bounds and it’s not confined to only one zone in the world. It crosses religion, politics, ideology and it feeds on them.

The visit is organized freely and allows to spend inside the time you want to aware to the problem, to self-educate to the threat of terrorism and to learn what we can do to improve everyone’s security.

Terrorism is a difficult subject to understand and the information is often instrumental. So the idea of an exhibition trying to educate was born: the best experts on the field in the world took part to its realization.

Definition of terrorism

What’s the most curios thing I learnt and I never thought to? It doesn’t exist a univocal definition of terrorism in the world. What we define in a negative way “terrorism”, in other places of the world it has a positive meaning.

I find it absurd. It’s sadly true but absurd!

Terrorism and awareness

A room with endless questions allows to aware to how less we know about the subject because terrorism is active every day, each moment and it changes tactics non-stop.

Today it uses actual instruments and it spreads by them its message of fear. Terrorism cannot exist without the message is amplified.

During centuries terrorism attacked and attacks the palaces of power, politics, economics and the simple communities.

In the last room we watch, better I’d say we are a part and a “victim” of a terrorist attack through space and time. How shocking!

We go out silently and without words.
