    the cemetary is abandoned right next to a small chapel, where there's practically nothing left, and what it is there is completly covered with ivy and weeds. In a book i've read that a lot has changed in the last ten years, cause the author recently went back and couldn't see anymore the shape of the chapel (San Martino) next to the cemetary. The chapel has been demolished when another noble one had been built for the Parrocchetti di Morazzone family in the XVIII century, who built the cemetary too. The chapel of the cemetary has been vandalised, and the cuffs stolen, so now everything is exposed to nature.

     Future Plans
    there's no intention to prevent the place to fall completely apart, althought it's a small piece of history.
