  • A beautiful statue, made thanks to funds derived from a public subscription immediately after the death of the Earl of Cavour, has a very simple style but beautiful and concrete at the same time. It also deserves to be seen because it is located in the beautiful Piazza Carlo Emanuele II.

  • The result of a public subscription to remember the statesman who had just passed away. The sculptor Giovanni Duprè won the competition for his work. It seems that the Turinese renamed the monument "the card clip". Cavour holds a piece of paper that says "free church in free state."

  • Nice chilled square with the statue. Seems to attrack young couples
  • I was passing through piazza Carlina today and wait for my colleague, I stopped to admire this statue and read some history tied to it. Apparently this monument was frowned upon by both the Church and the newspapers. The figure of Italy knelt, half-dressed, probably provocative represented, according to the citizens, an insult to the nation; Ditto the nudes of the statues and the togale dress worn by Cavour. Not to mention the lower head position that did not indicate a triumph but rather modestly.
