EnglishCemetery Florence

Monumental Cemeteries

An unusual route, definitely out of the popular tourist destinations. Cemeteries invite us to silence - even if sometimes immersed in the city traffic – and worthy of being visited as authentic monuments of art, real open-air museums enriched by works of art dating back between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Places taking us back to the seasons of Romanticism and Neoclassicism, a source of inspiration for writers, painters and musicians.

It is worth a visit as these places communicates Florence's cultural liveliness, focusing on the personalities buried there and on the artistic and architectural beauty of the place. Many great artists, politicians and historians are buried in the Protestant “English Cemetery”: Elizabeth Barrett Browing and Giovan Pietro Vieusseux; "Agli Allori" cemetery: Frederik Stibbert, Sir Harold Acton, Roberto Longhi and Herbert Percy Horne, Oriana Fallaci and in the Catholic Cemetery "delle Porte Sante": Carlo Collodi, Giovanni Spadolini, Ottone Rosai. Names that will induce us to reflect on their biographies and the cultural heritage they left us.

The English Cemetery is located in Piazzale Donatello, along the ring road, a few steps from Piazza d'Azeglio, the cemetery “delle Porte Sante” is adjacent to the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte, while “Agli Allori” cemetery is in the Galluzzo district.
