Little Temples in Cemetery of Milan

The Cimitero Monumentale in Milan (Italy) is a very large cemetery located on the square given its name, Piazzale del Cimitero Monumentale. Near the heart of Milan, the cemetery was designed by the architect Carlo Maciachini (1818-1899). It opened in 1866 and since then it has been filled with a wide range of both contemporary and classical Italian sculptures as well as Greek temples, elaborate obelisks, and other original works such as a scaled-down version of Trajan's Column.

The main entrance is through the large Famedio (Temple of Fame), a massive Neo-Medieval style building of marble and stone that serves as the tomb for some of the country's most honored citizens including Alessandro Manzoni. In the Palanti Chapel is a monument commemorating the 800 Milanese citizens who were executed in Nazi concentration camps. The cemetery has a special section for non-members of the Roman Catholic faith.
