Camposanto di Staglieno, Genova: Irregular Section Part II

The irregular Section of the Staglieno Cemetery offers some real huge tombs. The Capella Raggio (1895) (Architect: Luigi Rovelli)) was inspired of the Milan Duomo, a huge gothic cathedral.

To show the opposite here's a detail of a forged iron fence that went on for at least a hundred meters.

It's a true masterpiece of forging and just wonder how much that would cost today?
