Medardo Rosso





This small masterpiece, not far from E. Bazzaro's tomb, dated 1888 and inaugurated in March 1889, is in memory of Vincenzo Brusco Onnis, a radical republican friend of the artist. It is posed in the central area near the Crematorium Temple - about 600 meters from the entrance gate.

There are other works of Medardo Rosso in the cemetery; my favorite is Filippo Filippi Memorial (1889, East Circuit, n. 325). The artist is buried in the Non-Catholics section, Field 4, n. 119.
