Located in the homonymous garden, in the area where once stood the barracks "La Marmora", It is the work of the Turin sculptor Alfredo Bai (Turin * 27 November 1913-Trana + June 1980) author of the famous masterpiece "Christ of the Peaks" (1955) located on the top Balmenhorn at 4167 meters altitude on the massif of Monte Rosa. The monument to the mountain Artilleryman consists of an eagle with outstretched wings overlaying a piece of artillery, both in bronze, placed above a vertical development structure built of stone and exposed bricks. The left side of the monument is built with steps from the asymmetrical levels that visually recall the idea of the ascent in the mountains. On the side, in bronze characters, are listed the military campaigns in which the mountain artillery took part. A bronze plaque bears the inscription: "Our dead are living and commanding" With this phrase we indicate the live support and the ideal thrust that the Gunners who have fallen into war lead to all the Italian fighters today. As well as the exhortation and encouragement to always defend Italy and its people, even in the face of very adverse situations. The mountain artillery was founded in Turin in 1877. To remember in particular the sacrifice of our artillery during the Great War, when they had to bring in the mountains of the heavy pieces of artillery, enduring enormous efforts for the asperity of the Ascent and Suffering the cold of the heights. The flagpole flag of the monument is currently without the Italian tricolor, It would be nice if the Italian flag were always exposed.
