  • On one side of the garden Sambuy, opposite Porta Nuova railway station, a complex monument reminds the writer of the book heart. A plaque with a relief depicting Daddy and a long sculpture to remember the most famous work.

  • The Monumento a Edmondo Amicis stands in the southern part of downtown Turin on the edge of the Giardino Sambuy in close proximity to the train station Porta Nuova. The monument to the famous Italian writer was author 1914 designed by Edoardo Rubino and was inaugurated nine years later. The work consists of a female figure standing on a pillar and a relief wall, which shows many children. There is a portrait of the author in the base of the column. We found the design very nice and also a little unusual, therefore we have looked at like the monument. Around the monument, older gentlemen to the card game meet every afternoon.

  • The monument to Edmondo De Amicis (1846-1908), author of the heart, was designed by Edoardo Rubino (1871-1954) in 1914 and opened nine years later in piazza Carlo Felice. The statue of "sower of words" is symbolically before a high relief with portraits of children.

  • Once a flagship of the French spirit. A nice business card for those arriving in the city by train as it camped in front of Porta Nuova station. In recent years we have seen a slow and inexorable decline due to abandonment. The benches are now homeless day and night. The 5 entrance gates which, as the sign says, should be closed every night by the city's fire brigade are now perpetually wide open and those who venture into the evening inside would certainly be harassed by thugs and drug addicts who have exchanged the Sambuy garden for a campsite (clothes hanging from trees, bottles of alcohol everywhere and abandoned bedding). Urban cleanliness workers do not have time to clean up and start again as if nothing were in full freedom and impunity. I like to imagine that this garden so loved by tourists of a time not far away can return to being a corner of Turin that deserves to be remembered.
