On june, 7,  the third day of the  III. Naples Urban sketchers Workshop 2014 we gathered at Cimitero delle Fontanelle. In the dark chambers, cut into the tuffa bedrock, peoples’ remains were buried or brought post mortem since the 17th century onwards. Later a cult of devotion to sculls developed which lasted until the Cemetery was closed down. In the silence of respect we were sketching the man made caves, the bones and skullst arrangements and the signs of still present devotion to the dead.
