Summary

The Campo Verano is a cemetery in Rome that was founded in the early 19th century. The cemetery is currently divided into sections: the Jewish cemetery, the Catholic cemetery and the monument to the victims of the First World War.

General

The Verano is located in the quartiere Tiburtino of Rome, near the Basilica of San Lorenzo fuori le mura. The name Verano refers to the Ancient Roman campo dei Verani that was located there.

The zone contained ancient christian catacombs, but a modern cemetery was not established until the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy during 1807-1812.
