Cimitero Monumentale Perugia

My first visit to a cemetery this year was -as it turned out- the Cimitero Monumentale Perugia.

We went there last week and we were very lucky regarding the weather: Crisp blue sky awaited us!

The cemetery itself is rather small but we still didn't have the time to see it all but even the hour we spent there was worth our while.

Here we go:

Cimitero Monumentale Milano Revisit Part 9

Although this is part 9 (nine!) of the ongoing series there is still no end in sight. My estimate is that we covered about 2/3 from that batch.

I'm guessing it's not a Rodin. But it is clearly inspired by him.



Gorgeous



Just a small section of the cemetery.. like being in a candy shop.

Normally i'm not into celebrity hunting but this one is rather amazing: The last supper in a lifesize scale. It's the grave for the Campari-Family.

Cimitero Monumentale Milano Revisit Part 8

With a slight guilty feeling i realized i've left this blog more or less abandoned the last year. I'd like to change that and i'm beginning with the next part of my Milan Series.


And since i'm not really in the mood to write that much i'm getting straight to the pictures:

Is it just me or does it actually remind of Star Wars- The Clone Wars?

Some beautiful casing for a candle

Another one

This is a weird modern grave. But i really like it

Found the skull?

Brescia: Cimitero Vantiniano

The Cimitero Vantiniano was founded in 1815 and is one of the first Cemeteries build from scratch after Napoleon's Edict of Saint Cloud. The Edict forbid to bury the dead in and around churches and lead to the cemeteries we know today.

We first tried to visit this cemetery back in 2016 but it was closed over noon at the time. This time however we were there well before noon and could visit it properly:
