Jewish Section of San Cataldo Cemetery: This final resting place of Pio Donati and his anti-fascist friend, Francesco Ferrari, buried in the Catholic section of the cemetery. The bodies of the two men, who were exiled together during the war, were returned to Italy on the 20th anniversary of the liberation. Glass bricks replace the original brick wall separating the two sections allowing both tombs to be seen from either side. Tombstones from earlier Jewish cemeteries were moved and can be found in the community's current cemetery as well. [January 2009] - updated February 2010
