Amidst Italy’s wealth of magnificent architecture and art spanning Ancient Greek and Roman, medieval, and Renaissance eras, it’s important not to overlook the outstanding examples from the Art Nouveau period, known as Stile Liberty in Italy.

One such place to explore Art Nouveau treasures is the Cimitero Monumentale, located near the Stazione Porta Garibaldi rail station. This cemetery serves as an open-air gallery of Art Nouveau sculptures, many of which were created by renowned Italian sculptors. Under the watch of a monumental and flamboyantly striped marble portico, these monuments adorn the tombs of Milan’s affluent and notable individuals from the late 1800s through the mid-20th century. An English-language map is available to assist visitors in locating the most remarkable examples within the cemetery.
