It contained the remains of 463 Brazilian soldiers from World War II, most of whom lost their lives in the Fornovo in 1945.
In their final advance, the Brazilians reached Turin and on 2 May they joined up with French troops at the border in Susa.
Until 1960 the soldiers remained in Pistoia. In 1960, the cemetery was closed and their remains were officially interred with other Brazilian soldiers in the National Monument in Flamengo, Rio de Janeiro.
In 1967 the cemetery reopened with the inauguration of a memorial monument made by Olavo Redig de Campos, of Oscar Niemeyer's architectural school. The cemetery was later visited by two Brazilian presidents.
