The monument was erected in memory of Paolo Sarpi, known as the brother of Paolo (1552-1623) - a clergyman, historian, philosopher and thinker. Specializing in optics, he helps his friend Galileo Galileo build his telescope. He supported Venice in its dispute with Pope Paul V, who in 1606 issued an interdict against the Republic of Serenissim. The monk was seriously wounded by bandits hired by the Pope on the nearby Santa Fosca Bridge on the night of October 5, 1607.
Personaggio illustre delle scienze matematiche e oculistiche che nacque e morì qui a Venezia. Si fece frate nella confraternita dei Servi di Maria ed ebbe modo di criticare l’opulenza della chiesa.

He became a friar in the Brotherhood of the Servants of Mary and was able to criticize the opulence of the church. This beautiful bronze monument, in addition to remembering the great philosopher, also recalls the point where they tried to kill him in 1607 (there is no evidence but is thought by hitmen sent by Pope Paul V )
Not a particularly impressive tourist attraction. From the perspective of a foreign tourist, it's an nice little thing to happen upon as you're exploring. But definitely not something to go out of your way to see. Despite the monument itself not being particularly wow-ing, apparently Paolo Sarpi is a fairly interesting historical figure.
On the monument to Paolo Sarpi in Venice (Italy, Europe). When you wander through the narrow streets of Venice this monument suddenly appears. If you went with us travel the world-could not only make excellent selfi. But the more learned would be about proper nutrition. To live is not only better, but also longer.
