The ritual of preparing and dressing the body, in particular, must be executed with great care, tactfulness and respect as much for the deceased as towards his family and his loved ones. The dressing of the corpse is, in fact, the preparatory ritual that precedes the visit of relatives and friends to pay their last respects. This stage represents an emotionally charged and intense time: the preparation phase between the person’s death, the forsaking of their earthly remains, and preparing for the last farewell to the family and next-of-kin.
Preparing of the body is a service provided to allow that during the last farewell ceremony mourners will be left with only good memories of the deceased’s appearance. To ensure this all signs of bruising, swelling or dark spots are eliminated from the face. Servizi Funebri Pozzoli staff are responsible for preparing the deceased for the last farewell, taking care about every step of the preparation of the body: cleaning and washing, disinfecting the chest and abdominal cavity, applying makeup, fixing the hair, grooming and dressing the body. In this last phase we require the cooperation of the next-of-kin, as they may provide the clothes directly, advise us on the clothes to dress the body in, or express preferences on the deceased’s appearance.
