The monumental cemetery of Bonaria: a museum among the cypresses

The monumental cemetery of Bonaria is a suggestive and silent place, full of fascinating stories entrusted to the memory of the stone. It is a place where time seems to stand still, crystallizing faces, fashions, traces of a Cagliari history that brings with it the slow and at times sudden socio-cultural evolution of a city destined to change its face.
The splendid monumental works are the reflection of a society that changes and sometimes sarcastically reveals its contradictions, often leaving many questions open. What happened to the mild custodian of the cemetery in 1854? And what puzzles are hidden behind the mysterious disappearance of the famous sculptor Giuseppe Sartorio, who went down in history as "the Michelangelo of the dead"?
