Milan Monumentale cemetery is an extraordinary “concrete” evidence of 144 years of the city’s history. Since its opening,

in 1866, it has gradually been enriched with a growing number of Italian sculptures varying from classical style, Art Nouveau, up to contemporary style. These sculptures were made by famous sculptors and architects, such as Luca Beltrami, Giò Ponti, Pietro Cascella, Giò Pomodoro, Giacomo, Manzù, Arturo Martini, Lucio Fontana, Medardo Rosso, Vincenzo Vela and Adolfo Wildt. Greek temples, elaborate obelisks, stylized crucifixes, imposing angels, agonizingly sensual maids and other unique works are set among paths and gardens. Many people in various fields such as industry, finance, culture and sport, who contributed to the magnificence of Milan, are at the Monumentale. The Monumentale cemetery is, in fact, the second most visited place, after the Duomo, by tourists searching for Milan’s treasures. Join us for an open air art tour!
