"Garibaldi Statue" Statues Tip by antistar
Statues, Milan: 3 reviews and 3 photos
To what must be the chagrin of Italians everywhere, Garibaldi is more famous in Britain as a kind of biscuit than the great revolutionary leader he is known as here. He was the key figure in the Italian revolution which saw the country united for the first time since the Romans. He was also influential in the revolutions in South America, which saw him given the title of "hero of two continents". In Italy he is revered somewhat as the father of the nation, and so best not confused with the rectangular currant biscuit.
In Milan you can see his statue in the square in front of the castle.
Address: via Beltrami
Directions: Walk towards the castle from Piazza Duomo.
