Beautiful Sculptures at the Staglieno Cemetery, Italy

Staglieno owes its popularity and historic value not only to the fame of the great personalities who rest there but, above all, to its many sculptural and architectural monuments. Covering an area of more than a square kilometer, it is one of the largest cemeteries in Europe.

Although still unfinished, the cemetery was officially inaugurated on January 1, 1851. The cemetery contains the graves of Oscar Wilde's wife Constance Lloyd, Ferruccio Parri, Fabrizio De André, Nino Bixio, and Giuseppe Mazzini. Significant sculptors with work here include Leonardo Bistolfi, Giulio Monteverde, and Edoardo Alfieri.

In this gallery we present you some of the most hauntingly beautiful sculptures that are currently in the Staglieno.
