Italy is packed with art, but not just in museums where some of the most famous paintings, sculptures and tapestries are on display. The country is full of artistic works that can be viewed free of charge. For example, sculptures can be found in piazzas, as ornamentation on buildings or even in private homes. One of the best places to see amazing sculpture is in the local cemeteries where artists creating grave memorials do not restrict themselves to crosses, as I discovered in the Cemetery of the Holy Gate in Florence and the English Cemetery in Rome.
