Alessandro Volta was buried not far from his summer Villa in Camnago, near Como, where he died on March 5, 1827. The mausoleum, a temple of neoclassic style by architect Melchiorre Nosetti, was finished in 1831, decorated with statues and reliefs. On either side of the entrance gate, there are two statues by Luigi Argenti representing Science and Religion, and on the lintel the Italian inscription: "Ad Alessandro Volta - La Vedova e i Figli"1.
