"The Oldest Cemetery in Bologna"

The site of the oldest cemetery in Bologna, the Certosini cemetery sits on top of what was previously an Etrusan necropolis. The necropolis was uncovered in 1869 by archaeological digs carried out by Antonio Zannoni. The cemetery has now become a very special memorial. It is beside the Certosini Monastery (built in 1801). Nowadays, it contains a collection of the most artistic funeral monuments, many of which were carved by some of the best 19th-and 20th-century artists. There are monuments to famous men like Giosué Carducci and Giorgio Morandi e Ottorino Respighi.
