    Two crucial elements have impacted the human history - economy and religion. They are inextricably linked, even when this may not be visible. There is a witness space of this linkage, a witness to the changes that have occurred in this history of our times. It is the funerary space, an enclosure dedicated to those who died, which simultaneously reflects the changes and the coordinates of the living functional space. The community economic level in a particular era may trigger mentality alterations, detachment or old habits (re)search. The marking forms of the funerary space are the same as those of the urban space (buildings and forum monuments). It is easy to notice the same level of investment and imports as well as the monuments gradation, depending on the buried rank. This mirroring phenomenon has not known interruptions throughout human history. The deceased space hence offers us today a spectacular view over the economic fundamental role in defining the culture and the identity of the living ones.
