Enrico Zanini and Catterina Segata tombstones

AUTHOR: Ruggero Dondè

The tombstones are dedicated to the spouses Zanini, who died two years apart, and were made in deco style.
In the tombstone on the left, that for Catterina Segata, is represented by a female figure while a flower stands: it is probably a lily, a symbol of purity and innocence traditionally associated with the Virgin Mary. In Enrico Zanini’s tombstone is carved a male figure holding his head with his right hand and with his left resting on a skull. This last element indicates that the man is reflecting on death.
