This cemetery is world-famous because of the large number of monuments with a high artistic value. The territory of the cemetery is 25 acres. The most famous and honorable citizens of Milan are buried there, for instance, the famous painter Francesco Hayes, creator of the famous drink Campari and founder of Campari Group – Gaspare Campari, Mozart’s brother Karl, Milanese pastry chef Angelo Motta, prominent writer Alessandro Manzoni, and many others.

A variety of architectural styles (from realism to abstractionism), as well as a vast range of materials (from stones and metal to polished glass) were used in the realization of crypts and mortuary monuments of the cemetery. For example, the famous painting “The Last Supper” here is made of stone and decorates the crypt of Campari family. Italians are proud of the cemetery in Milan. And even nowadays it is a great honor to be buried there.
