A mio parere per il valore storico e simbolico della resistenza contro i Francesi e per il sacrificio di questo grande uomo è da considerarsi il monumento più importante di Torino more »In my opinion for the historic and symbolic value of the resistance against the French and for the sacrifice of this great man is considered the most important monument in Turin
Six targets are represented in a modern and stylized style, next to each other, on a concrete base: in the background, side by side with them, three arches have been made, also made of concrete. The monument was created by Franco Assetto (1911 - 1991). Galileo Ferraris was put in place on the 150th anniversary of the founding of the Bersaglieri weapon.
Modern monument consisting of a row of bersaglieri running on a concrete base placed on the side of a concrete colonnade. Not very meaningful and for sure of low visual impact. Unfortunately it was vandalized with paint. Would deserve a cleaning to bring it back to the original state
