Friends of the Non-Catholic Cemetery

This beautiful cemetery of great historical importance is entirely self-supporting – it receives no regular public funding. Its main income comes from the concession of plots for the few burials that take place nowadays, and from the annual maintenance payments made by families. It also depends on the efforts of many volunteers.

In 2009 the noted American filmmaker Ira Meistrich made a beautiful film "So Sweet a Place" in support of the Cemetery. You can view this at

Why We Need Your Help
If you love this place, please can you help us by becoming a Friend of the Non-Catholic Cemetery in Rome? Your financial contribution will be used directly for meeting our long-term goals of keeping the Cemetery the beautiful and tranquil place that it is. In 2008-09 the Friends helped to fund the printing and distribution of the regular Newsletter, a risk assessment study of the Cemetery’s trees, and the restoration of some of its important tombs.
