Monumento a Garibaldi
This part of the Gianicolo is partly dedicated to the events leading up to Italian unification, when Garibaldi's troops were fighting the French soldiers in the first half of the 19th Century. This equestrian statue of Garibaldi was sculpted in the late 19th Century by Emilio Galloni, and the base depicts episodes in the battle along with allegorical figures. Along Viale Aldo Fabrizi there is another statue, dedicated to Anita Garibaldi, created in 1932 by Mario Rutelli. The base of this statue forms the tomb of the Brazilian wife of Garibaldi, "hero of the two worlds".
If you choose to walk this road (Via Garibaldi), be very careful as it is one lane each way, many blind spots because of the curves and no sidewalks to speak of. You have to inch your way along the shoulder very close to the cars at times. Once there, you�ll be treated to a breathtaking view of the city. The angle of this view does not include St. Peter�s unless you walk across the street to see it on the other side. None the less, a view you will not tire of..the walk is another story.
