“The Capuchin crypt in my mother’s postcard collection sits beneath the church Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini in Rome. It is a thirty-metre corridor dedicated to death. The Capuchin monks were pretty straight forward in their artist’s statement about the crypt with an infamous sign that says: ‘What you are now, we once were; what we are now, you shall be…'”
