The development of legislation to establish the construction of cemeteries as public facilities in consideration of public health issues originated in France during the Age of Enlightenment. This concept began taking root in Sicily and in the South of Italy with a slight delay in comparison with the other European countries. Further, more substantial delays are due to the fact that some municipalities have never observed the rules issued by King Ferdinand I since 1817, nor those established by the new Savoy kingdom after the unification of Italy. In the outline of the events related to the creation of the cemeteries in Eastern Sicily, the events of Piazza (Armerina since 1862), one of the main centres of the administrative system of the island (it was district capital since 1812, then subintendency and seat of bishopric since 1817), represent an interesting case study for the reconstruction of a debate which started just after the Bourbon law and ended during the 1880’s with the opening of two separate public cemeteries.
