Gigi Proietti, incredible journey 2 years after her death: but how is it possible?



Two years after his death, Gigi Proietti has still not found a burial in the Monumental Cemetery of Verano: his body is currently still in Umbria.

After eighty years of art in all its facets, Gigi Proietti died on November 2, 2020 from heart problems. The actor left an immense legacy in Italian culture, starting with the theatrical performances in which he starred since the 70s, the television where he landed in the 80s and the Globe Theater founded in 2003.

As for Gigi Proietti, don’t forget her Stage Practice Laboratory for young actors. Artists such as Flavio Insinna, Gabriele Cirilli, Enrico Brignano and many others came out of this school. To pay homage to him, after his death, the family had the possibility of burying him in Verano.

The monumental cemetery of Verano, which extends over an area of ​​83 hectares in Roman territory, has been a burial place for at least twenty centuries. It is a veritable open-air museum, where even the most important artists of our time have been buried. The family members therefore took care of the transfer of the body from Umbria, where he died.

The newspaper La Repubblica, in the first days of October, returned once again to document the real situation in Verano. After showing in recent years a general situation of dilapidation, as well as incredible reports on the discovery of one hundred thousand doses of cocaine in the niches of the cemetery, another sad news has arrived.


At the end of 2022 in the Monumental Cemetery of Verano “pain would mingle with rot”. The signs of abandonment would have multiplied: we would see chapels left in the dark and overturned tombstones, falling plaster and scaffolding suspended in nothingness. Moreover, last May the news of the desecration of the tomb of Alfredino Rampi had arrived.

There would remain no trace of the chapel which the Capitol and the Ama had given permission to build to the heirs. It seems that everything has stalled due to bureaucratic problems. There will be many constraints for the construction in Verano, and the family of Gigi Proietti has not yet appointed an architect.
