Bellu Cemetery (1859) in Bucuresti, Romania, is our National Pantheon and sort of a VIP cemetery.
For over 100 years some members of my family were also buried there, so, as I went there today to commemorate 6 weeks since my father passed away, I took a few pictures.
Here’s the true story of one of the monuments (by Italian sculptor Rafaelo Romanelli - 1902).
Constantin Poroineanu, a rich landlord, sent his children to study abroad in Paris. One of his sons fell in love with a Parisian student, whom he married and brought to Romania. In his youth, old Poroineanu, being himself in Paris, also for studies, had an affair with a Parisian of which was born a girl, the same girl that married his son. Not knowing anything, things were going well, the young people were happy, but at the age of 30-35 years an old woman who knew the truth told them.
Long story short, that resulted in both of them committing suicide, followed a few years after by the father, old Poroineanu, after donating all of his great fortune to the city of Caracal…
