ALPHABETICAL REGISTER OF THE AMERICAN BURIALS

IN THE SWISS PROTESTANT CEMETERY OF FLORENCE,

CALLED 'THE ENGLISH CEMETERY', 80 ENTRIES, 87 BURIALS



Eighty Americans are or were buried in Florence's Swiss-owned so-called 'English' Cemetery, 1827-1877. The fifth City and Book conference, 11 October 2008, held at Florence's Lyceum Club International, concentrated on these and on other American writers and artists present in Florence in the nineteenth century and on Anglo-Florentine writers closely associated with them. We publish the papers on Hiram Powers, Louisa (Adams) Kuhn and Henry Adams, James Lorimer Graham, Margaret Fuller, Lilian Whiting, Kate Field, Theodore Parker, Richard Hildreth, Joel Hart, Amasa Hewins, etc. at http://www.florin.ms/CBV.html

 
Because the Swiss owners wanted to close and abandon the 'English' Cemetery, we have created a weblog at

http://piazzaledonatello.blogspot.com

and set up a petition at

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/471134975

The petition reads:

'That the Swiss-owned, so-called 'English' Cemetery in Florence be kept open, be restored and be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site'

'Che il Cimitero 'degli Inglesi' a Firenze di proprietà Svizzera possa ancora essere visitabile, sia restaurato e sia dichiarato dall'UNESCO Patrimonio Mondiale dell'Umanità'

This Cemetery in Florence is a way of studying the history in exile of Americans, British, Russians and Swiss. We seek your help in saving this treasure.

Please help! And thanks.

The very beautiful Swiss-owned Protestant and Orthodox Cemetery in Florence was first bought from the Grand Duke Leopold II of Tuscany in 1827. Its official name is the Cimitero Porta a' Pinti for that gate had been in what is now Piazzale Donatello. The original cemetery was designed by Carl Reishammer to nestle against the wall by the gate.


 

Come appariva il Cimitero fuori della cinta muraria, in prossimità della Porta a' Pinti, porta edificata da Arnolfo di Cambio e ri-costruita da Michelangelo; il dipinto si riferisce al periodo cha va dal 1827 al 1869./ From 1827-1869 the Protestant Cemetery outside the wall at the Porta a Pinti, the Pinti Gate, itself first built by Arnolfo da Cambio and reconstructed by Michelangelo, gave this appearance.

Later, Giuseppe Poggi incorporated it as an oval island with its tall cypresses within his great viali, now so filled with traffic.

The Cemetery was then closed in 1877, when the medieval city wall was torn down, following which it could only be used for the burial of ashes, not bodies. Some of the American burials precede its closure, others, of ashes, were later. Quite often, Americans had themselves buried in lead, to be shipped to the States later.

These fifty years were a time of great cultural energy for the Florence of the Risorgimento, briefly the capital of Italy, in which Americans, as well as English and Russians participated fully. Sculptors like Hiram Powers and Joel Tanner Hart came here. Anti-slavery advocates like Theodore Parker and Richard Hildreth came here, there also being buried here the black Nubian Nadezhda (Hope) who came to Florence at 14 with Jean-François Champollion and Ippolito Rosselini's 1828 expedition, funded by the Grand Duke, her story being told on the marble of her tomb in Russian in Cyrillic characters, while Lord Leighton sculpts a broken slave shackle on Elizabeth Barrett Browning's tomb, for her family had been slave owners in Jamaica but which she passionately hated, writing her famous sonnet on Hiram Powers' 'The Greek Slave', the sculpture that had been at the centre of the 1851 Crystal Palace Exhibition and The Runaway Slave at Pilgrim's Point.

________

Among the American Consuls were Hiram Powers and James Lorimer Graham, the latter having his portrait medallion sculpted by Launt Thompson, and who created a fine library and collection of art, which Daniel Willard Fisk, who lived in Walter Savage Landor's Fiesole villa, would in turn follow with his magnificent collection of books on Italian and Icelandic writers, now at Cornell University. Henry Adams' sister, Louise Adams Kuhn, is buried here following her death from tetanus in Bagni di Lucca, and The Autobiography of Henry Adams describes this in his 'Chaos' chapter.

Not all Americans who visited Florence came to be buried here but these tombs record their friendships: Henry James was to write of Isa Blagden; Nathaniel Hawthorne having written of Isa Blagden and Theodosia Garrow Trollope in his Miriam in The Marble Faun; and Sophia Hawthorne of Hiram Powers and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, in her Diary; while Margaret Fuller was likewise Elizabeth Barrett Browning's friend, and who becomes the eponymous heroine of Aurora Leigh, complete with the Brook Farm phalanstery in the nine-book epic Elizabeth wrote following Margaret's drowning with her baby and Italian husband off Fire Island, Emerson sending Thoreau to look for their bodies. A photograph of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's tomb by Lord Leighton would be treasured by Emily Dickinson and this and Aurora Leigh be alluded to in her 'The Soul selects her own society' and other poems.

In this pre-1870 postcard photograph one can see the medieval wall as still present, outlining the cross John Roddam Spencer Stanhope sculpted for his daughter's tomb, and the ark William Holman Hunt sculpted for his wife.

Poignantly, many American babies are buried here, Italy being then subject to diseases like malaria, about which Henry James wrote, though several of Florence Nightingale's friends find burial here, including the physician Southwood Smith in a tomb with a medallion sculpted by the American Joel T. Hart, and the epitaph by Leigh Hunt that he advocated 'fresh air and sunlight in the home/ of the rich poor of happier years to come'.
 

Many Americans have helped make this web essay possible: Jeffrey Begeal, Carolyn Carpenter, Robert J. Robertson, Naomi Slipp, Don and Mary Williamson. The Swiss and the English thank them.

JAMES LORIMER GRAHAM, JR (1836-1876), a scholar and a diplomat, he availed himself of acquaintances and friendships in widely differing cultural circles. In New York, his work for Putnam's Magazine moulded the mid-nineteenth-century American avant-garde. He accumulated a fine collection of art and antique manuscripts in his New York home. President Grant appointed him Consul General in Florence, and he and his private museum moved into Villa Orsini, in Via Valfonda. He took parts in works of beneficence for the city and especially for Protestant causes. He was a member of the Evangelical schools, initiated the American community's custom of holding a charity bazaar, and popularized the use of the Christmas tree. His friend, the poet Swinbourne, wrote an elegy to his memory. LS

JOEL TANNER HART (1810-1877), an American sculptor and poet, lived in Florence from 1849 until his death. In the neighbourhood of Piazza Independenza where he made his home, between the Trollopes' villa and Grenough's studio, he was known as 'little Mr Hart'. A reserved man who shied away from social life, he threw himself wholeheartedly into his work; it was said that by studying 150 models and Florentine types he succeeded in creating in 30 years, the statue of a 'woman without passion, full of love', which he called 'Triumphant Woman'. He sculpts the tomb of Southwood Smith (D20I). LS

THEODORE PARKER (1810-1860)

Born of a modest family in Lexington, Massachusetts, he studied at Harvard Divinity School, specializing in a study of German theology. He was drawn to the ideas of Coleridge, Carlyle and Emerson. In 1842 his doubts led him to an open break with orthodox theology: he stressed the immediacy of God and saw the Church as a communion looking upon Christ as the supreme expression of God. He organized the first congregations, called Unitarian, in Boston, and participated in the fight for the abolition of slavery. Seriously ill, he sought refuge in Florence because of his friendship with the Brownings, Isa Blagden and F.P. Cobbe, but died scarcely a month following his arrival. Frances P. Cobbe collected and published his writings in 14 volumes. [William Wetmore Story sculpted his tomb, replacing an earlier one and Frederick Douglass specifically visited this cemetery to see his tomb.] LS

Contemporary Photograph in the Diary of Susan Horner, 1861-1862.

HIRAM POWERS (1805-1873), an American, even American Indian, came to Florence in 1837 to study and work, and settled in Via Serragli, the artists' street of the day, with his wife and two children. He earned an international reputation for his statuary, for which he liked to choose the marble and supervise its quarrying himself, and he received considerable acclaim for the busts he did of several presidents of the United States. The cemetery also contains evidence of his grief: James (+1838), Frances (+1857) and Florence (+1857), his children, who died at five, eight and seventeen years of age in this their adopted land. LS
See Library, Giuliana Artom Treves, Golden Ring, passim. We are seeking descendants of Hiram Powers, son of Hiram Powers, the sculptor, who moved to Florida where he married and had a daughter.

This statue, 'The Greek Slave', was the centrepiece of the Crystal Palace Exhibition and the subject of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Sonnet. It shows a Greek Christian slave being auctioned by Muslim Turks. In her poem Elizabeth draws the analogy also to American enslavement of Africans, Russian enslavement of serfs. Near Hiram Powers' tomb is that of Nadezda (Hope) De Santis, a black Nubian slave baptized Orthodox, who died in Florence in freedom.

Hiram Powers' 'The Last of Her Tribe', shows a Native American woman fleeing her captors. Every detail is observed down to the delicate sewing of the mocassins. The theme repeats that of 'The Greek Slave', a woman representing freedom against male oppressors.

Hiram Powers' statue of America, which is more truly American and more beautiful, than the Statue of Liberty, the gift of France. This plaster cast was discovered in his Florentine studio in 1966, along with many others, were purchased by museums in Washington, D.C. but have not been adequately studied, publicized or exhibited. Margaret Fuller's death, along with her husband and baby in the shipreck of the Elizabeth off Fire Island was partly caused by the colossal statue by Hiram Powers in its hold. Nathanael Hawthorne observed him and his studio for the writing of The Marble Faun . Among Powers' works is the head of the Princess Matilde Buonaparte Demidoff. Hiram Powers' sculpture career had begun with his modelling Dante's Commedia in wax in Cincinatti, Ohio, for Frances Trollope .
