Cimitero Monumentale del Verano

Rome
Free Admission
Presentation
The monumental cemetery of Verano is Rome’s main cemetery. The idea for the cemetery first surfaced following the Edict of Saint-Cloud (1804), ordering all burials outside of the city walls. Building work was first started under Napoleonic rule, but the plan we see today is accredited to the Architect Virginio Vespignani who completed it in 1871.

Since it was first opened up until 1980, virtually every Roman was buried here, with the exception of popes, cardinals and royalty.

The tombs may here be found of several celebrated Italians, including Goffredo Mameli (patriot, poet and writer and author of the lyrics of the national anthem), Vittorio de Sica (Actor and Director), Alberto Sordi (Actor), Alberto Moravia (Novelist and Journalist) and Giuseppe Ungaretti (Modernist Poet).
