    In the case of a personal cemetery scripture you can do whatever you prefer, it is just a question of personal style.

    As Gio says, a family grave is a personal thing, so the script should be left to personal taste, but capitalising all or most words is extraneous to any Italian usage. I'd go for either all caps or a sentence capitalisation (first word of the sentence/phrase and proper nouns).

1 Answer 1


As explained in answers to this other question, title case is quite common in English, but it's extraneous to Italian. So, I would say the standard way to write the examples of scriptures you propose in your question is simply use sentence case, in the following way:

  • Nei nostri cuori per sempre

  • Riposa in pace
