Cemitiere Maggiore: Via Emmanuele Jona. In 1972, a small area of the huge non-Jewish cemetery was sectioned off for Jewish burials. At that time, the graves seemed quite neglected.
On May 16, 2006, forty Jewish gravestones were damaged, five of them completely destroyed in the Jewish section of the Via Jona cemetery late at night. The graves were overturned, though no graffiti or anti-Jewish slogans were found at the site. [January 2009]
