Staglieno Cemetery: Where Death is Beautiful

The cemetery of Staglieno represents more than the dead. It represents a confluence of movements that furthered the cause of the living. Cimitero monumentale di Staglieno—as it’s called—sits on a quaint hillside in Staglieno district of Genoa, Italy, with beauty wrapping like a wreath of hope around the memory of death. A cemetery isn't what pops into mind when you think of a tourist destination, but this burial site has attracted visitors from around the world for its monumental sculptures and breathtaking architecture.
