Faro della Vittoria (3)


At the top stands the magnificent copper statue of Victory, by sculptor Giovanni Mayer. It weighs about 7 tonnes and is 8.6m tall.


The wings have holes in them to stop the Bora wind blowing the statue off.

The height and the weight is very impressive, and seems quite appropriate for a statue named Victory. Beautiful photo!
