39. Giovanni Boldini
Ferrara 1842 – Paris 1931
A painter of worldwide fame, his name became synonymous with the female period portrait, with his luminous realism. He was a prominent figure of the Belle Époque, and was admired by the high aristocratic society of both France and England. His tomb, which was created by the Del Monaco e Zigola studio, was inaugurated in 1983 to receive Boldini’s remains from their original primitive monument (included on pathway 3); it stands proudly on its own, in an area surrounded by greenery.
