Help save these masterpieces!

The Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno in Genoa, Italy is one of the world's great sculpture collections, but these masterpieces are at risk. Will you help save them, so they can continue to enrich and inspire future generations?

To date we have restored 12 sculptures, with two more underway and one planned for January 2018. However, there is much more to do; please give whatever you can to save more wonderful artworks in the coming year. Any amount will help! We are a U.S. based non-profit organization working with the city of Genoa and the provincial office of Belle Arte (fine arts) to help preserve these irreplaceable artworks.

Debarbieri Memorial

Luigi Brizzolara, Sculptor, 1918

With your help, in 2017 we saved this dynamic Art Nouveau sculpture. Restoration of the two small flanking gems, the Bodoano and Maina memorials, is nearly complete. (photo above shows it prior to restoration, covered with up to 3 mm of dirt; below, in a detail of the restored work, you can once again see it as the artist intended.)
