I took this picture in 2011 outside the Cathedral Santa Maria Nascente in Milan Italy. We had just left the Cathedral and this installation was in front of a museum in the square. It was about two million degrees and we hadn’t eaten at all and never did see the musuem. I never did find out anything about these sculptures and not sure if it was a temporary or permanent display.
I never did publish the image. It was taken at noon and I tried to do some masking and editing but could never get the detail I wanted. I decided to use some of the NIK collection tools on the image and finally got it to the point where I can share it. It was a stark contrast to the medieval architecture of Il Duomo.
Giuseppe Garibaldi was an Italian general and political figure and seen as one of the founding fathers of modern Italy. Garibaldi was a central figure in the Italian Risorgimento. He personally commanded and fought in many military campaigns that led eventually to the formation of a unified Italy. He was appointed general by the provisional government of Milan in 1848. The statue is opposite the Cathedral in the Plaza Il Duomo in Milan, Italy
