"The Talking Statues" of Staglieno. Beautiful photographs of the Monumental Cemetery of Staglieno in Genova, Italy. These statues were immortalized on two Joy Division covers, and of note, Oscar Wilde's wife is buried there. (mentioned in this story linked in this previous thread)

Just to comment -- the photo of Wilde's wife is with Wilde's eldest son Cyril, not with Oscar Wilde himself.

Is she dancing with death? Sweet! This is one of the coolest cemeteries I've ever seen. Thanks NortherSky

I'd always loved the cover to "Closer" and had wondered about it... Now I know, thanks!
