    Was very pleased to discover the monument dedicated to the Russian sailors in Messina, who first came to the aid of the inhabitants of Messina affected by earthquake dekabrja1908 year 28. Details of this event are easy to find online, I just remind you that the Russian sailors rescued from the rubble more than 2000 people. Nicholas II later said that sailors for a few days in Messina have made Russia more than all its diplomats for many years.

    Located on via Garibaldi and viale Boccetta near the fountain of Nettuno.Il monument with inscription in Russian, do you remember the aito given by Russian sailors during the tsunami of 1908. Even today for Messina this monument is a symbol of their history.
