Fontanelle Cemetery – Cimitero delle Fontanelle

novembre 19, 2013 in EYES!! da NWF

The Fontanelle Cemetery / Rione Sanità – Naples – Italy

Video by: Fabio Palmieri

The Fontanelle cemetery in Naples is a charnel house, an ossuary, located in a cave in the tuff hillside in the Materdei section of the city. It is associated with a chapter in the folklore of the city. By the time the Spanish moved into the city in the early 16th century, there was already concern over where to locate cemeteries, and moves had been taken to locate graves outside of the city walls. Many Neapolitans, however, insisted on being interred in their local churches. To make space in the churches for the newly interred, undertakers started removing earlier remains outside the city to the cave, the future Fontanelle cemetery. The remains were interred shallowly and then joined in 1656 by thousands of anonymous corpses, victims of the great plague of that year.

Sometime in the late 17th century—according to Andrea De Jorio, a Neapolitan scholar from the 19th century, great floods washed the remains out and into the streets, presenting a grisly spectacle. The anonymous remains were returned to the cave, at which point the cave became the unofficial final resting place for the indigent of the city in the succeeding years—a vast paupers’ cemetery. It was codified officially as such in the early 19th century under the French rule of Naples. The last great “deposit” of the indigent dead seems to have been in the wake of the cholera epidemic of 1837.

Then, in 1872, Father Gaetano Barbati had the chaotically buried skeletal remains disinterred and catalogued. They remained on the surface, stored in makeshift crypts, in boxes and on wooden racks. A spontaneous cult of devotion to the remains of these unnamed dead developed in Naples. Defenders of the cult pointed out that they were paying respect to those who had had none in life, who had been too poor even to have a proper burial. Devotees paid visits to the skulls, cleaned them—”adopted” them, in a way, even giving the skulls back their “living” names (revealed to their caretakers in dreams). An entire cult sprang up, devoted to caring for the skulls, talking to them, asking for favors, bringing them flowers, etc. A small church, Maria Santissima del Carmine, was built at the entrance.

The cult of devotion to the skulls of the Fontanelle cemetery lasted into the mid-20th century.

Marmore’s Falls – Beautiful and Sublime

settembre 7, 2013 in HEART!!, MIND!! da NWF

Beautiful and Sublime – the Marmore’s Falls /Umbria/Italy

a short film by Fabio Palmieri
music by Giuseppe Verdi – Messa da Requiem /Lacrymosa Dies Illa

The Cascata delle Marmore (Marmore’s Falls) is a man-made waterfall created by the ancient Romans. Its total height is 165 m (541 feet), making it the tallest man-made waterfall in the world.
The legend tells that a nymph named Black fell in love with a handsome shepherd Velino. But Juno, jealous of this love, transformed the nymph into a river, which took the name of Black. Then Velino, not to lose his beloved, threw himself from the Marmore cliff. This leap, repeated for eternity, is now the Marmore Falls.
