One of the largest cemeteries in Europe, the Cimitero monumentale di Staglieno in Genoa, Italy covers more than a square kilometer. It opened in 1851 and since then has gained a reputation for its monuments to those buried there. And what monuments they are. It is a place for contemplation, for reflection on human frailty and the short-lived nature of our time on earth. The pictures speak for themselves.
