Taphophile Tragics

As I mentioned last week I visited the cemetery Staglione in Genoa Italy which dates from 1851 and has very much sculptures on the graves which are rather dramatic. But who wouldn't have this Adonis on his gravestone? He seems to be overwhelmed by grief.

I like the Italian theatrical outings.

This is my contribution to Taphophile Tragics

  1. A beautiful adonis with a well-placed towel. Our luck is that he is overcome with grief on the tombstone of another young hunk!

    I missed last weeks post as I was interstate on family business. I shall try to catch up.

    Thanks for rejoining Taphophile Tragics. Your posts are most welcome.

  3. Maybe just taking a nap. We had a mayor of San Francisco by the name of Alioto long ago.
