Trick or Treat!

"That which you will be, we are now. He who forgets us, forgets himself."...More......

So reads the inscription over a little late Baroque chapel now facing onto Piazza Aquileia, but once part of a small cemetery in use from the late 1600s until the late 1800s.

Originally just outside the city walls in the Porta Vercellina area, the cemetery's position lost this distinction when the city's defensive Spanish Walls (begun in the mid-16th century and continually augmented) were torn down because considered useless during the peace established by the Empress Maria Teresa of Hapsburg in the second half of the 18th century.

This picture was snapped with your personal non-commercial enjoyment in mind on Saturday the 28th of October, 2012, around 4 P.M.

Trick or treat!
