Cremona Monumental Cemetery

Cremona, Italy
Very easy to reach, just 5 minutes walk from the central train station, the Cemetery was built in 1809 outside the City Walls according to the new Napoleon’s law on burials. It has many nice burial monuments placed both on graves and in private chapels running all arounf the Cemetery walls. Liberty and Neoclassicism are the prevalent styles but I could find a good balance between stone and bronze (which I am not an admiror of).
The day I took my visit was probably not the right one, as the mix of snow , refraction and light made some pictures too bright.
