  • It is a monument to the second lieutenant of the Kingdom of Sardiña in Piazza Castello. In the middle of the square stands out. There is also a fountain where you can play in the water.

  • Military monument to the Bishop, gifted by the Milanese and inaugurated in 1859 to thank the sardo Piedmont army. Placed in front of Palazzo Madama. In his right hand he wields the sword and in the left hand the flag. Created by Vincenzo Vela liberal and Republican artist. Discreet statue but clearly evident in context.

  • 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.
