This tour will guide you to discover the most important families of Milan in a very special place: the Cimitero Monumentale, the Monumental Cemetery.
Artists and sculptors realized spectacular monuments (some of them more than 20 mt high) to represent sorrow, glory and history of the family: Bocconi, the father of the most important University of Milan; Campari, the inventor of the famous red bitter; Toscanini, the orchestra conductor of the Scala Theatre.
The heart of the graveyard is the Famedio, a civic temple where you can find names and tombs of the people who represent the city of Milan, like the writer Alessandro Manzoni, the footballer Meazza and the painter of “the Kiss” (that you can see in Pinacoteca di Brera), Francesco Hayez.
