Venezia, Italy is built in a laguna – with houses on wooden pillars. Where to have a graveyard in this situation? Venezia has an own island (San Michele) for this purpose and on this you can find the Cimitero di San Michele.
The island has a size of 460 * 390 meters and 11 permanent residents live here. The graveyard is so small that corpses have been exhumed and stacked. It was created from 1837 on and it is walled at the outside of the island.
