Opting for burial in niches is a fairly widespread practice, as it saves a considerable amount of space in the cemeteries due to verticalization of the tombs. For burial in family tombs or private chapels, special cemetery concessions are required.
The corpse is enclosed in a zinc case with a minimum thickness of 0.66 mm, for hygienic and sanitary reasons. It is usually placed inside a wooden box to avoid compromise with the aesthetic appearance. The zinc is welded with fire, to ensure the insulation and water tightness of the chest. It is then placed in niches or family tombs and is further sealed by a brick or concrete wall.
The outer wall of the niche features photographs and inscriptions, and can be decorated with lighting systems, planters and various decorations.
