  • I made a quick visit to the cemetery, at the express request of an American lady who wanted to make "interesting photographs". I personally remember the reputation it has the monument, but I was impressed by the sheer size of the complex and the collection of exemplary Stories represented by exponents of the Genoese nobility buried therein. Thanks to the passionate tale of a guide-custodian echo stories of distinguished citizens or inhabitants of the city, who entrusted a statue the remembrance of their work. Funerary statues, almost all made with Carrara marble, are marked by the style of REALISM GENOVESE and constitute a direct witness of the behaviour of the individual than the mystery of death. The problem that arises is, without doubt, that of protecting the architecture, because acid rain are deteriorating the statues, together with a collection of historical heritage, admirably summarized by the tale of the Guide. Among many significant stories, the one that lingers is of a woman who was a Peddler and commissioned his own funerary statue, before death, to arouse the admiration of acquaintances.

  • If you love the monumental cemeteries that can not miss on your ' collection '. If you love liberty you will find some wonderful esempi...ma overall a little too careless ...

  • Monumental cemetery. One of the most beautiful of all Europe. I recommend you to follow a guided visit.
  • One of the best attractions in Genoa. It's an ancient 19th century cemetary that turned into a museum. Must see.
  • Amazing experience!! One most see, not only for its Masonry work but for the views of the Genoavese mountain side.
  • Staglieno is not just a cemetery it is an experience. There are a lot of monuments art galleries and buildings for tourists to go to in any town. This though was a beautiful experience. Surrounded by the dead and loved.
  • 這是意大利熱那亞一個非常奇妙的,絕對獨一無二,會讓你終生難忘的景點。你找不到相似的地方。雕像很棒,震撼人心。如果你想参觀完所有東西大概需要4-5小時,如果你時間不夠的話,可以跟着地圖参觀重點景點。不用門票,所以你可以找一個陽光明媚的日子到這裏走走。關門時間大概是下午5點。
