Giuseppe Mazzini’s Mausoleum

Another important person buried in Staglieno Cemetery is Giuseppe Mazzini, crucial figure for the history of Italy. His Mausoleum was open since it was the anniversary of Breccia di Porta Pia, so we saw it in the inside.
I loved the writing out of the Mausoleum (unluckily I don’t have a picture of it):
“Il corpo a Genova, il nome ai secoli, l’anima all’umanità.”

An oddity: Mazzini’s body, inside the tomb, is mummified by the scientist Paolo Gorini.
