Cemeteries of Forli Image Album Kalpana Image Archives - Emilia Romagna Region, Italy

City of Forli is on Via Emilia, the ancient Roman road that connected Rome to Piacenza. The images on this page are from two cemeteries of Forli. The first group of images is from the "Indian cemetery", cemetery of Hindu, Sikh and Muslim soldiers from British India, who had died in Italy during the second world war. Between September 1944 till May 1945, around 50,000 soldiers had come to Italy from British India, out of which 23,000 had been wounded and 11% (around 5,800) had died. Though called "Indian" cemetery, it also has graves of soldiers who had come from cities that are today in Bangladesh and Pakistan. A couple of years ago, Sikh immigrants have built a memorial to remember Sikh soldiers who had died here and in August Sikh immigrants gather here every year for a day of celebration and pride.

Just across the street from the Indian cemetery is the regular Forli cemetery, for the citizens of Forli. It has an old monumental part that is worth visiting for its cemetery art with some beautiful statues.
