Since there is civilization, man has always reserved a special worship at the graves. Deorum manium iura sanctum summary.
This phrase that is how The ASepulcra begin, referred to as belonging to the Code of the Twelve Tables, it is actually an ancient precept mentioned by Cicero in De legibus.
The first written reference to the laws of Rome, albeit erroneous, has a very significant value, because it documents to Ugo Foscolo the preservation of the tombs within the law at all times.
Taking a step back in time, we can see that already in the past, more precisely in 1700, he developed an interest in everything that was old and later to the Roman era and classicism.
Thanks to Gentile who introduced “The Tomb” in the school of the three years program, we can compare our mind about the value of the tomb with what Foscolo had about two hundred years ago.
In Tomb Foscolo he writes that the tomb has an important value, because if the deceased person was very expensive, you can still maintain a dialogue with her.
The tomb must be cured and you have to keep alive the memory of the beloved, and in return she will give us good advice that will be useful in the course of our lives.
Doing it this way, it gives the possibility to the dead person does not fall into oblivion, but to live after death (it is an illusion that causes a behavior actually).
Obviously this is not true for the great characters (eg. Poets, writers etc.) That are remembered over the years thanks to their works.
Those who have lost someone important and he can not find peace, it is often used to pay homage to the soul of the departed dedicating a special thought through the language of flowers.
He who errs, firm in his convictions, just consider these fragrant buds, denying what is the true meaning of which are carriers.
