Venice doesn't have much of the selfstanding monuments on the squares, not as much as one could expecting, but on the other hand isn't the old core of the town monument for itself? Other places telling us stories by exposing monuments of the people whom they admire, but Venice is seducing us with all what this magic town has.
The bronze equestrian monument to Italian King Vittorio Emanuele II, work of Ettore Ferrari from 1887, stands on the Riva degli Schiavoni.
The monument to Carlo Goldoni, who was great reformer of the Italian comedy, stands in Campo San Bartolomeo.
The monument to Daniele Manin, patriot and one of the heroes of Risorgimento (unification of Italy), stands in Campo manin.
The monument to Francesco Morosini, who was doge and admiral, stands in Campo San Stefano.
The monument to Pietro Paleocapa, who was scientist and politician, stands in Giardino Papadopoli.
