Summary

Our extra-ecclesiastic cemeteries reflect the desestructurization by bourgeois liberalism of the ancient-régime community. They are a space of social acculturation and a show of classist urban compartimentation. The current performances in uniformity or distribution answer to a "neo-Basque" programming. Decoration loses its semantic wealth, except in tombs of politicians. The kitsch show devotional peculiarities and a homogeneous commercial offer. Nineteenth century religious fear gives way to solid and pleasant references (family, homeland, autochthonous culture), a response to the current existential in security.
