The November 11 1918 is the day of the armistice that marked the end of World War I, which ended with an armistice in fact dell'11 November 1918.

In Memorial Day, which takes place every year in November 11 in England, they commemorate all the soldiers who died doing their duty. As a symbol of this sacrifice, the artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper filled the famous moat surrounding the Tower of London with 888.246 poppies ceramic, escaping from a window on the large grassy expanse that divides the historic site from the city.

Since August, red poppies, which symbolize the blood shed, have continued to spread gradually throughout the space, installed individually in the landscape by a team of over 8.000 volunteers, each of 888.246 flowers is a British soldier who died during the war.
