  • Among the accomplishments of Messina now that bind to the past, it is significant to the monument to Russian sailors that the Centre for national glory of Russia, Moscow, and Andrew International Fund Slavic culture, donated to the city in June 2011. The monument, which is in the offing, between viale Boccetta and via Vittorio Emanuele, titled the April 23, 2013 to Russian sailors, made by Vassily Selivanon on the model that in 1911, had designed the sculptor Pietro Kufferle (Verona 1871 – Pontedera 1942). A pupil of the sculptor Grazioso Sweep had important commissions in Russia where he was appointed Director of the school of sculpture of the pages of Tsar Nicholas II.

  • 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.
