    If you the Futa pass then it is worth to visit this cemetery. Very easy to find is clearly visible from the street, a good parking and admission is free. The cemetery is home to miles of German soldiers who died during World War II, well maintained and clean.

    Who is located in the area (Futa) and also to cool off during these days of heat recommend a visit to this beautiful place, which until 20/08/17 is hosting the company Zeta Archive with their Metestasio. Imperdibli, cemetery and show! The first is embedded in the Apennines between Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna, thus easily accessible from the motorway (exit firenzuola or roncobilaccio), has free parking and entrance fee but the view is seafood alley. Just wind, silence and contemplation. Unique and magical--if you're visiting in the morning or early afternoon better autonomy because the show starts at 18:00. The second, "Minotaur" Roadshow, you provide perfectly within this space. The careful choreography, the wise use of its setting and the excellent interpretation of all actors can bring to life the grandeur and the silence of this cemetery up to allow him to become, for the duration of the show, a gigantic and fascinating stage.

    About Futa is as if time stood still. Place on the Futa pass between the Sasso di Castro and mount Gazzarro, the cemetery collects German soldiers died in World War II. The site combines stunning views over the Valley and reflection of Firenzuola on the other and on that of Castiglione dei Pepoli. In the summer the company Zeta Archive organizes prestigious theatrical performances attended by Italian institutional figures, too. A place to visit.

  • The cemetery is located in a fantastic scenery into the hills between Bologna and Florence, during the war on this hills for months 1000 /1000 people lost their lives. The place is enormous and now in this place of Silence over 30000 people are buried
  • During World War II the Futa Pass was part of the Gothic Line. A German military cemetery was created nearby in the 1950s.
  • Beyond the empty rhetoric pacifist who I saw in these comments, we have to look reality in the face: the thousands of children buried here were here to defend their country, Germany, and what remained of Italy not occupied, from the invasion of an overwhelming enemy who had declared war first. The fate of the conflict was already marked: when fighting on the Gothic line only a fool would not understand that the war was lost. Still, for honor, they fought by giving his life in defense of those German and Italian lands that until a few years before were free and sovereign. One can only pay honors to those who fight, at the cost of life, a war that he knows be faulted relentlessly.

  • Hot day over the second half of September, very few visitors besides us. The caretaker was momentarily absent but everything was in perfect order in the room where there are books with lists of the fallen-over 30,000! -buried in the cemetery. A notice affixed to a glass-switch off mobile phones before the show--left us rather perplexed, alone at home I could ascertain that in adjacent forest are held in summer theater. The place has nothing of moroseness usually associated with cemeteries, single file and neat rows of small tombstones amid expanses of green lawns. In the shrine, which looks a bit like a bunker, still gravestones and commemorative inscriptions. Magnificent scenery around, which pushes you to imagine the same places in the grip of madness of war. A visit useful and perhaps, in this period, a duty to make us reflect on the tragedies of wars that are going through many people close to us.

  • A place of great beauty. A geographical location very scenic. The cemetery dominates large parts of the surrounding areas and a simple architectural design but because of this even more majestic, gives an idea of the immense tragedy behind 30,000 headstones. Look at the date of birth and death of so many kids, sometimes 15-year-olds, to understand why behind every war there is the tragedy of all nations involved in the madness of a few
