The Fontanelle cemetery in Naples is a charnel house, an ossuary, located in a cave in the tuff hillside called of Materdei, in the heart of the old city. It is source of a fascinating phenomenon in the folklore of the city.
A spontaneous devotion to the cult of relics of this nameless dead developed in Naples. Lovers visits to the skulls, cleaned them-“adopted” them, in a way, even giving the skulls back their “living” names (provided by dreams). A whole cult grew, dedicated to caring for the skulls, talking to them, asking for favors, bring them flowers, etc.
