Description

The cemetery structure was inspired by the Byzantine architectonic style of Ravenna. It has a quadrangular plant, which is parallel to Rabbi provincial road. It was built between 1928 and 1933 on a project by the architect Florestano di Fausto. The severe S. Cassiano in Pennino parish church rises in one of the corners of the cemetery.
The restore of the cemetery was urged by Benito Mussolini, who wanted to burry the bodies of his parents together and above all to give a monumental feature to the place where his mother had been buried in; her grave was constantly visited by people coming from all over Italy. The quadrangular plant of the cemetery has three porticoed sides, while the fourth is part of the parish church. On two opposite corners there are the entrance and the chaple for religious services. Benito Mussolini and his family's graves are located in the crypt. In the cemetery there is also the grave of Adone Zoli, famous catholic anti-fascist, who was minister and prime minister of the Italian Republic in the fifties.
