Brion Family Tomb

Lonely Planet review

To see Scarpa’s latest, greatest work, return to Asolo and head 5km east to San Vita d’Altivole town cemetery, where you can’t miss the 1969–78 Brion Family Tomb with its raw concrete bridge to the afterlife rising from Zen-style gardens. Follow stepping stones over water into the domed chapel, where the sarcophagi are housed. Scarpa chose to be buried standing up near his clients, along a boundary wall.
