Alessandro Faccio and Teresa Pasti tombstones

AUTHOR: Ruggero Dondè

The two tombstones were made for the spouses Alessandro Faccio and Teresa Pasti and each one represents a female figure dressed in ancient style.
In the loculus of Alessandro, the one on the right, the woman is kneeling, with her head tilted back and a bouquet of flowers in her hands. In the tombstone for Teresa, instead, the female figure is always kneeling but with her head bowed and holding in her left hand a lamp similar to those in wrought iron and deco style that decorate the two loculus. This ornament, typical of funerary art, is a symbol of the light that comes from faith and a reference to the memory of loved ones who always remain alive in those who remain.
