  • The inscription is in Russian but, helped by my wife, I have come to know the beautiful words of gratitude of Messina to Russian sailors on the occasion of the terrible earthquake in 1908.

  • Dedicated to the sailors of the Russian ships that were in port at the time of the earthquake of 1908. The monument commemorates with affection and gratitude the great effort of the sailors who worked in the recovery of injured people buried in the rubble, at the risk of his own life.
