Faro della Vittoria (2)


The lighthouse seen face on: you can make out the impressive figure of the sailor (7.2m tall) by Giovanni Mayer, which was created using 100 tonnes of Orsera stone. The anchor of the torpedo-boat destroyer Audace (the first Italian ship to sail into Trieste port on November 3rd 1918) hangs under the lighthouse. The only detail in focus is the anchor chain.

Tomorrow I'll show you what there is at the top.
