The church of S. Mary Conception, usually named "dei Cappuccini", is known for the cemetery. Here from 1627 to 1631 were carried the bones of about 4.000 friars.

"We were like you and you ‘ll become like us"

This is the announce getting in the cemetery.
Once the visitor has entered, a macabre sight waits for him: rosettes, stars, flowers, festoons, and chandeliers made with the friars’ bones.
The most incredible rycycling of shinbones, femurs, kneecaps, fingers…ever seen.

Oh Rome the paradox city, this cemetery is in “via Veneto”, the “Dolce Vita”(sweet life) street!!!
