35. Memorial Chapel of the Dead
by Carlo Savonuzzi
The Memorial/Ossuary Chapel, built at the behest of the Municipality to commemorate the nineteenth century soldiers who died in the field and military hospitals during the First and Second World Wars, was inaugurated in 1961. Built in brickwork based on the designed by engineer Carlo Savonuzzi, it has an elliptical layout with a pronao at the front and a lowered bowl-shaped roof made from cement and brick. The elegant façade features an imposing portal with a round arch completed with elegant decorations in terracotta. The various decorative elements include angels, capital scrolls, shells, pelicans, and heads of cherubs.
