American Friends of Italian Monumental Sculpture

Working with Camposanto di Staglieno, Genoa, Italy

The monumental cemetery of Staglieno in Genoa, Italy is the largest outdoor sculpture museum in Europe and houses the finest collection of late 19th and early 20th century Italian marble sculpture, yet it is almost completely overlooked. Genoa is not part of the “grand tour” of Italy, and cemeteries rarely get the attention of art lovers, art historians, or tourists, so even within Italy this incredible place is almost unknown.

The magnificent treasures of Staglieno are part of our cultural heritage. You can help American Friends of Italian Monumental Sculpture (AFIMS) continue its work with the City of Genoa to preserve the art and artistic legacy of the Camposanto di Staglieno. Learn more about our mission.
