  • Nice statue, rich in details and great reminder of Italian war for unification. Its beautiful surrounding only makes it more stunning.  more »
  • .. a small monument, whose relative importance keeps on fading as time goes by ... coherent with the architecture of the square, unlike the fascist eyesores, but completely lost in its grandness...  more »

  • A beautiful white marble statue depicting an unlikely soldier. With his sword drawn and a huge tricolor the bishop was a gift from Milan to the Piedmontese army that at that time (1857) was committed to liberate the Piedmont from the Austrian rule... The winter afternoon the statue is well exposed to the sun and the contrast with the prospect in the shadow of the famous palace behind it guarantees good photographs.

  • The work was a tribute of Milan who were hoping for an intervention of the Sardinian army, before nationalistic expression instances, for liberation by Austrian troops. Vincenzo Vela made the Bishop with the Italian flag in his left hand and with the short sword in his right hand, liberal and Republican as the ideals that would defend and pass. The statue was completed in 1857 and opened two years later. Double base is made of granite, while the soldier is in white marble.
