  • 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.

  • The monument, depicting the Russian sailors, is a tribute to the Russian Navy who first lent me succor to the city which was devastated by the earthquake and tsunami 1908. The Russian sailors were distinguished for generosity and's tireless, as testified by numerous documents of the time, and were surprised at the huge delay Italian State aid. Messina, grateful for that priceless rescue, expressed with such monument, affection and gratitude.
