  • Beautiful monument dedicated to an illustrious and versatile character from Lecco. It can be admired in its beauty from the lakefront in the beautiful setting that forms the background: the Resegone. The statue stands out in a red brick structure flanked by fountains. A must stop: it's worth it!
  • Lake front monument framed by Mount Resegone in memory of the Lecco area, considered the father of Italian geology, seminarian, geologist, paleontologist, prehistoric anthropologist, academic, mountaineer. He took part in the revolt of the Five Days of Milan. Appointed first president of the Milan CAI in 1874, one of the first founding members of SIAE, as well as Maria Montessori's uncle. A great Lecchese !!
