The Protestant Cemetery in Venice is a part of the municipal cemetery on the island San Michele. It is first of all a cemetery in use, serving the small but living Protestant communities of Venice. It also tells the many stories of individual members of the international communities of the city through the last 200 years. This is an important part of the fascinating multicultural society that still links many nations to Venice.
As all visitors can easily see, the Protestant Cemetery is in urgent need of care, maintenance and restoration. The charitable foundation that runs this website, ARECSM Onlus, Associazione Reparto Evangelico del Cimitero di San Michele is working to improve the situation and at the same time to open a window on this interesting segment of Venetian and international history.
