Grave Reference:

I. D. 3.

Location:

The ANCONA WAR CEMETERY lies in the rural locality of Tavernelle, in the Commune and Province of Ancona, 3 kilometres south of the town of Ancona. The ANCONA WAR CEMETERY is reached from the town by following the Varono-Camerano road up the hill past the Ancona Communal Cemetery on the left. Continuing straight down the hill for about 200 metres, visitors will find the War Cemetery on the right. Alternatively, leave the Austostrada at Ancona Sud and take the SS16 towards Ancona. After approximately 3 kilometres (via Pietro Filonze) turn right to pass in front of the wholesale fruit markets; pass under the railway line and at the next junction turn left. The War Cemetery is found after several kilometres on the left shortly after a FINA petrol filling station. This route is signposted.
