Built on the second half of the nineteenth century by the “Confraternita della Misericordia” (Confraternity of Mercy), it is a majestic structure that gives you a shiver down your spine whenever you walk it over.
The majestic Cemetery of Mercy, with its horseshoe like structure, is located not far from the town centre. It had been built on the second half of the nineteenth century by the Confraternity of Mercy as a burial site for their members.
It is a place where you can roam if you have a thrill-seeking disposition: crossing the gate, guarded by big skulls, you stroll across sorrowful neo-classic statues and Neo-Ghotic little shrines.
Two eminent citizens are buried there: Elbano Gasperi, the hero of Curtatone and Piero Traditi, the mayor who gave to Napoleon the Key to the city.
