  • At the roundabout in front of the entrance to the Palazzo Sforzesco on a high pedestal stands the stately equestrian statue of national hero of Italians, the father of Italian Giuseppe Garibaldi, which led to the unification of small principalities in the United Italia. Brown Memorial by Ettore Ximenesa and architect Augusto Guidiniego was formed in 1895. Plinth is decorated with allegories of the revolution and of courage. Look at the details, the monument and muse over the not-so-ancient history.

  • Beautiful monument, amazing for beautiful photos!
  • Impressive statue of Giuseppe Garibaldi. follows a direct line from the "arco della pace", the Castle, the fountain and then this statue.
  • Very nice statue, with perfect location in front of the castle
  • Garibaldi monument!
  • A classic commemorative monument, a bit pompous but very nice: and very visible! The intent of the sculptor Ettore Ximenes and architect Augustus Guidini, authors of this impressive monument (built in 1895) that is at the heart of Largo Cairoli, surrounded by a very rich and manicured shrubbery, was to enhance the role of "hero of two worlds "and to recall the exploits, expressing that feeling of gratitude towards the protagonists of the Renaissance that was very strong at the end of the 19th century. In this, his ability to express a widespread feeling (perhaps more than in artistic quality) is the beauty of the monument placed – specifically – in the great square that was created at the end of the work and the Foro Bonaparte would reset had to leave the large road designed to unite the Castle with its Cathedral. The fact that the square is dedicated to fratelli Cairoli seems odd, but it isn't if one remembers that the fratelli Cairoli fought alongside Garibaldi and four-to five-were killed in action or as a result of the injuries sustained in battle! Garibaldi (with the beret and the poncho, according to tradition) is, with the saber semisguainata, proud, horseback planted on all fours, fermo, but ready to go again to accompany the Commander to fight other battles. The bronze statue is placed on a high pedestal that rests on a wide base. The sides of the base two large bronze statues of young women that represent freedom that puts the sword into the sheath after mortally wounded the Tiger of tyranny and revolution-accompanied by a roaring lion, symbol of popular power-lever up a torch and wields the sword; Laurel and palm trees surround the shield on which are the names of the great battles that Garibaldi took part and complete stand decoration, in perfect harmony with the spirit of the celebration fairly strong Resurgence in the late 1800s.
