Description

The Non-Catholic Cemetery of Rome, once called "Foreign people Cemetery", is considered one of the most beautiful cemeteries in Rome. The cemetery, located close the Pyramid of Gaius Cestius, was established because according to Papal State law, no Non-Catholic could be buried in a church or on blessed land; therefore burials took place at night, to avoid religious fanaticism among the people and to guarantee the safety of those who attended the funerals. Some famous italian and international celebrities are buried here such as Gramsci, Gadda and Keats.
