Giuseppe was a pretty prominent person in Italian history as a soldier, politician and fierce nationalist. So he has parks, squares, streets etc. named after him all over Italy since his demise in 1882. Not overly loved by all during his lifetime but Joseph Marie G at birth has now taken on legendary status. The statue is grand , the surroundings , not so !

Took a walk from our cruise ship through the town and came across this statue in a very nice park not far from the seashore. Lovely gardens and a nice place to sit and relax.

Monumento a Garibaldi has been in the La Spezia Public Gardens for over a hundred years and will stand there for probably another hundred or more! The Great Man deserves it, and obviously all Italians agree as there seems to be a monument to him in practically every Italian city! It's a nice bronze equestrian sculpture showing Garibaldi in his glory. We came across it while taking a stroll in the area. It's near the port, and the views across the water are also lovely. It would make for a nice day out for a family with kids. You can catch a ferry here too. Worth a visit.

The monument to Garibaldi on horseback show the father of Italian unification. Is is situated at the end of a shady park and is right by the waterfront promenade. Good for history buffs.
