Cimitero Maggiore di Padova

 I finally got around to visit the Main Cemetery in Padova. I've visited the City itself a couple of times but never the Cemetery itself.

There's not a lot of information available about it: Founded in 1881 (according to Sandra Berresford: A legacy of love -by the way an absolute Masterpiece!- ) or 1882 (Official Website).  It is a rather large cemetery but it is rather empty at the same time.

If you enter at the main entrance just tun right and you'll see about 90% of the interesting stuff compressed in a portico about 50 meters long.

 Cimitero di Monumentale Rimini

There is not really a lot of information available about this cemetery available. It is seemingly famous for having the grave of Frederico Fellini but that's about all i've managed to dig out. Mind you i've not digged deep because i couldn't be bothered to.

I knew though that it would be interesting anyway because it's a fairly big cemetery and it has a "monumentale" in the name. That's always an indication of being a good cemetery in my mind.

The entrance. Got lucky with the weather!

Cimitero Certosa, Bologna

 These days i'm working on a book and due to my research i've realised that i've never made a post about the Certosa in Bologna. I was there shortly before Christmas 2015 so it's a slight gap between visiting it and posting about it...

I definetly recommend to visit that gem if you ever get the chance. Bologna itself is a wonderful city and the cemetery is one of my faves. Look for yourself:
