CFFC: Rome’s Non-Catholic Cemetery

Cee calls and I deliver: twenty images from the Non-Catholic Cemetery in Rome, a surprisingly cheerful spot, for her Fun Foto Challenge.

Not just due to all the flowers. It was April after all. And I know Cee loves flowers too, especially bearded iris, that’s why there are some in all of these photos, or at least greenery.

At least two of these graves display well-known names. (Clues: Perc-Bys-Shell and J. Ke__s) More about that in a post to come, I’ve got LOTS of photos from there left. All in all, an absolute must-visit.

  6. I love cemeteries. I believe they are the most peaceful places. A sense of completeness. I read Axel Munthe’s book and loved it. In my world, we have Laurel Hill Cemetery full of elaborate monuments-this place reminded me of it. The serenity of your photos and the life in them. Just what I needed today.

    1. Oh, Claudia, I’m so glad. But not all cemeteries are alike. In Italy, Catholic or not, cemeteries are alive even in death.

      1. The newer ones here, not so much. Kind of like, let’s take care of the dead but not think about it much. The older ones here, well, a whole different story. Maybe it just takes time, but I also think it requires allowing interesting monuments (vs. plaques lying on the ground) and…not arranging the place in regimented rows stretching into the distance. In the hot sun. So the lawnmower can get around easily. Somehow that is just too much for me!
