The Cemetery in Greci holds a history of the families who have lived in Greci.
Like most cemeteries in Italy, the graves are recycled. The plots are rented for about 50 years and sometimes for longer but not for more than 100 years.
As you walk through the grounds of the cemetery you will often see gravestones in the bushes that are placed there when the gravesites are reused.
When I first visited in 1988 a large part of the cemetery was being redone and was bare of all stones. During recent visits, I have noticed that the cemetery is growing and additional space is being used for new graves.
I began taking pictures of the gravestones and the pictures of the people who the stones honor during my last several visits. Recenty I learned of a Greci school project where students in Greci have recorded the names on the stones.
This section contains the pictures I have taken during past visits and recent pictures taken by Nick Norcia during his August 2006 visit.
