27. Giuseppe Mentessi
Ferrara 1857 – Milan 1931
A painter who initially adhered to the symbolist trend, and later to divisionism and social painting. He even worked in the field of theatrical sets, and was assigned several jobs at La Scala. In accordance with his own wishes, his tomb, the upper portion of which has unfortunately been damaged, also contains the remains of his beloved mother, who lived with him her entire life, and next to whom he wanted to be buried.
