Sicily-Rome American Cemetery is managed by American Battle Monuments Commission, and lies at the north edge of the town of Nettuno, Italy, which is immediately east of Anzio, and 38 miles south of Rome.
The cemetery sits in the zone of advance of the U.S. 3rd Infantry Division during the Anzio-Nettuno campaign beginning in January 1944.
A temporary wartime cemetery was established here on January 24, 1944, two days after the units of the VI Corps landed on the beaches nearby.
Just inside the cemetery gates, straight ahead is a large elliptical reflecting pool with dimensions of 82 yards by 66 yards. The island in its center contains a cenotaph of bronze-colored travertine in the shape of a sarcophagus. It is flanked by groups of tall Italian cypress trees.
Within the 10 grave plots (A through J) there are 490 unknown burials, two Medal of Honor recipients, 25 sets of brothers, and 17 women. Every grave is marked with a white marble headstone: 122 with a Star of David for those of the Jewish faith, and a Latin cross for 7,738 others. The backs of the headstones are inscribed with the service numbers of the decedents. As in all ABMC cemeteries, the burials are not separated by rank; officers and enlisted men are interred side-by-side.
