Mausoleo Faccanoni

Via Suardo, Sarnico, Bergamo

Before the construction of the mausoleum, the cemetery of Sarnico was modest, square in shape, surrounded by a wall and equipped with a small church and a mortuary. When building the mausoleum, the Faccanoni brothers intended to give a more dignified aspect to the local cemetery. They proposed to the authorities to demolish the small church and the mortuary and offered to build a mausoleum which, in addition to the tombs for their families, contained a new church, a chapel and a mortuary more suitable for the new arrangement. For this purpose, they also offered land adjacent to the cemetery on which to erect the new building.
