  • In piazza Castello, between the Regio theatre and the Royal Palace, under the arcades of the Prefecture, there is a bronze medallion depicting Christopher Columbus, with the little finger of the right hand especially "exposed". The survey was carried out by Dino Salas in 1923, in memory of the participation in the World War I Italian immigrants in Latin America. Tradition has it that rubbing the little finger of the hand of Columbus bring good luck: superstition is so widespread that the finger was long ago replaced, consumed by touches of passersby!

  • Under the arcades of the prefecture in piazza Castello is a bronze medallion in relief depicting the most famous Navigator and Explorer of all time: Christopher Columbus. Has the characteristic of having the finger particularly in evidence. In the background a globe and a Caravel, in memory of his business. Legend has it that rubbing the little finger of the hand of Christopher Columbus bring much luck. Hurtes! :-)
