Betteri monument

AUTHOR: Ruggero Dondé

Monumento Betteri

The monument is dedicated to the Betteri family and consists of a block of marble resting on the stylobate with a female figure carved in the upper part. The young woman, represented with the hairstyle and fashion clothes at the time, is lying on the sarcophagus and is sleeping, symbolizing the eternal sleep of death. The character used for the inscriptions with the family name, the list of the dead and the phrase “La serenità della morte” (the serenity of death) made with a distinctly art nouveau style, very fashionable at the time, is very particular.
