History

The Verano (officially the Communal Monumental Cemetery of Campo Verano) is located in the quartiere Tiburtino of Rome, near the Basilica of San Lorenzo fuori le mura. The name verano refers to the Ancient Roman campo dei Verani that was located here.

The zone contained ancient Christian catacombs. But a modern cemetery was not established until the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy during 1807-1812, when the architect Giuseppe Valadier was commissioned for designs after the Edict of Saint Cloud required burials to take place outside of the city walls. The papal authorities still have some control over the administration. Pope Francis celebrated All Saints Day Mass here on a papal visit to the cemetery on 1 November 2014.
