It seems like a strange idea visiting a cemetery to view Italian sculpture, yet The Staglieno Cemetery Genoa houses the greatest examples of Italian Realistic sculpture of the late 1800s in Italy. It is famous for its weeping angels and sorrowful widows as well as its eerily lifelike depictions of the bereaved and the deceased in contemporary clothing, which have earned the nickname “the talking statues.” "The art of Staglieno is like a desperate cry for immortality. So real are the gestures and expressions of the statues that it is like the corpses interned in the cemetery have come to life. Yet like the transi tombs of the 15th century the dust that covers the statues is a reminder that they are not alive and that death comes to all of us. A visit to Staglieno is both inspirational and unforgettable". Paul. Staglieno was the subject of a 2003 book of photographs by Lee Friedlander and featured on the covers of records by the English band Joy Division.Significant sculptors with work here include Leonardo Bistolfi, Augusto Rivalta, Giulio Monteverde, Eugenio Baroni, Edoardo Alfieri and Vittorio Lavezzari.
