Monumental Cemetery of Verona

Verona, Italy

Following the Napoleonic edict of Saint-Cloud which stated that all burials must take place outside the city walls, the city of Verona started the building of this cemetery in 1829. The room did rapidly fill so that, in several further enlargements, several lots have been added. Built in neoclassical style, it is very easy to distinguish the old, original part from the new one. Very precious the wall burials for the very particular style and, of course, all the family chapels in the colonnade. Many side chapels containing single or common burials, nice burials on the ground too. Not much extended nor particularly dusty vaults, but very interesting for style and epitaphs.
