  • I think it's one of the most beautiful and fascinating cemeteries of Italy, a real open air museum. Beautiful course, even if they are not too agree on approach the tomb of From that of Carducci (not for matters of comparison, but because each of them has his greatness, and perhaps The deserved a little glory all to itself, rather than look bad in front of the Nobel Prize). Unfortunately it is maintained and used badly, left virtually, at various points, in a State of abandonment. Last year we took a friend in Munich, and gasped: This means that the potential it has to sell.
