  • Fascinating place and at the same time load of meditations, I found by chance to visit it in the "day of remembrance", and this has particularly contributed to immerse myself in an environment that he brought back to mind and catapulted into the atmosphere of the poetry of Edgar Lee Masters, his "Spoon River anthology", I appreciate deeply and calmly the incredible crowd of sensations that in an open mind can result from this meeting. I was fascinated. Not least gather at the graves of the Finzi-Continis, 1970 actual film directed by Vittorio De Sica, based on the novel by Giorgio Bassani.

  • A gloomy afternoon in February, after a heavy rain in the morning, so we had to walk a long time in the wide spaces of the cemetery. You play the caretaker, this open, does sign the register, asks you to cover their heads with the skullcap and then open to the visit, indicating the route to reach the spot where he buried Giorgio Bassani cemetery is an oasis of absolute peace, green areas invite contemplation and meditation, groups of tombs tell stories that resonate long in a place not to be missed , opening the mind and letting your thoughts flow freely through it. A graveyard from which you come out alive.

  • Nice how many Jewish cemeteries, but too much foliage on the graves. Little maintenance. To enter you must ring the caretaker

  • Unfortunately I found it closed and lacking in information to access it. Too bad.

  • Impressive. A little distracting and abandoned. Tomb of the author of the garden of the Finzi-Continis Giorgio Bassani
