Cimitero Acattolico per Stranieri

Via Caio Cestio 6, Rome

4.5
The Cimitero Acattolico ("Non-Catholic Cemetery") of Rome, often referred to as the Cimitero dei protestanti ("Protestant Cemetery") or Cimitero degli Inglesi ("Englishmen's Cemetery"), is a public cemetery in the rione ('region') of Testaccio in Rome. It is near Porta San Paolo and adjacent to the Pyramid of Cestius, a small-scale Egyptian-style pyramid built in 30 BC as a tomb and later incorporated into the section of the Aurelian Walls that borders the cemetery. It has Mediterranean cypress, pomegranate and other trees, and a grassy meadow. It is the final resting place of non-Catholics including but not exclusive to Protestants or British people. The earliest known burial is that of a University of Oxford student named Langton in 1738. The English poets John Keats and Percy Bysshe Shelley are buried there.

    A moment of (permanent) respite in the hustle of Rome. This is the beautiful Non-Catholic Cemetery in Testaccio, where Keats and Shelley have their final rest, and the cemetery cats have their own Facebook page. The 300+ year-old cemetery houses Orthodox Christians, Jews, Muslims, Protestant and eastern Orthodox graves, along with Islam, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism and Confucianism. Even Daisy Miller, the heroine of Henry James's eponymous novella, was buried here, along with Beat poet Gregory Corso.

    有趣的是,那么多非天主教的外国人选择在罗马安葬,知名或不知名的艺术家、诗人和雕塑家,等等。一些比较著名的有歌德(诗人的独子),还有英国青年诗人雪莱和济慈。这是一直以来,欧洲最古老的墓地之一。

    Un luogo molto particolare e suggestivo, circondato dal verde in cui si può ammirare anche un lato della piramide Cestia. Particolare spicco hanno, tra le altre, le tombe di Gramsci, Shelley, Keats o Foa. È tenuto abbastanza bene.
