Admire artistic tombs at Monumental Cemetery, a large cemetery opened in 1866. Several of the tombs were designed by renowned artists. Enter through the large, Neo-medieval-style Famedio that contains the tombs of some of Italy's most honored citizens. Look for the exhibit of prints, photographs, and maps outlining the cemetery's historical development. Next, wander through the cemetery to discover both contemporary and classical Italian sculptures, as well as Greek temples, elaborate obelisks, and more. Visit the Civico Mauoleo Palanti to see the memorial built for 800 Milanese killed in Nazi concentration camps.
