Ok statue of a rich general who gave all his land and money to the government of Venice IF they put up a statue of him.
Intersting monument from the static persepctives - it one of the first to put horse on a 3 legs
The statue itself is interesting from a technical and historical perspective but it sits in a lovely square near the hospital, where locals gather in the evening and children play on their bicycles. The restaurants on the square are decently priced and good and of you're here, walk inside the hospital and admire the building.
