Nettuno, Italy

The World War II Sicily-Rome American Cemetery and Memorial is situated at the north edge of the town of Nettuno, Italy.  It is just east of Anzio and thirty miles south of Rome.  The cemetery can be reached by automobile from Rome along Via Cristoforo Colombo which runs into Via Pontina (Highway 148).  Drive south approximately thirty-seven miles and exit at Campoverde/Nettuno.  Turn right to Nettuno and go five and a half miles to the cemetery There is hourly train service from Rome to Nettuno where taxicabs can be hired.  There are numerous hotels in Anzio and Nettuno.

The cemetery site covers seventy-seven acres, rising in a gentle slope from a large pool with an island and cenotaph flanked by groups of cypress trees.  Beyond the pool is an immense field of headstones of 7,862 American military Dead arranged in gentle arcs which sweep across the broad green lawns beneath rows of Roman pines.  Many of the Dead interred or commemorated here lost their lives in the liberation of Sicily ( July 10 to August 17, 1943); in the landings at Sabeno Area (September 9, 1943) and in the heavy fighting northward; in the landings at Anzio Beach and expansion of the beachhead (January 22, 1944 to May 1944: and in air and naval support in the regions.

At the head of the wide central mall stands the memorial, a building rich in works of art and architecture, expressing America's remembrance of its Dead.  It consists of a chapel to the south, a peristyle and a museum to the north.  On the white marble walls of the chapel are engraved the names of 3,095 American Missing who gave their lives in the service of their country and whose remains were never recovered or identified.  The museum room contains a bronze relief map and four fresco maps depicting the military operations in Sicily and Italy.  At the north end of the memorial is an ornamental garden.
