In those years the richest families of Aulla and the town community renovated the 17 graves which were partially explored and which gave out some precious objects: 33 crucifixes, 10 rings, rosary beads, buttons, coins, 231 devotional medals, and a precious pendant-reliquary which enshrines printed prayers, leaves, and cloth-relics (?) between two drawings of Christ and of the Madonna. Some tools have accompanied the bodies into the graves: barber’s razors, thimbles, scissors, tailors’needles, and a glass flask which probably contained blessed water.
Anothèr gravestone bears an inscription which reminds people that death is just a passage to another life while waiting for Resurrection:
do not believe, wayfarer,
that this is a grave
it is training for eternity
