Quarto dei Mille Favorites
Favorite thing: ... on the main drag - which is called V Maggio. (5th of May.)
There seem to be lots of streets in Italy called V Maggio so now I know why.
The plaque is a piece of rhetoric written by one of the (nearly) 1,000 men - Prof. G.C. Abba.
It means something like - deep breath as I launch into very bad Italian translation-
"On the night of 5th May 1860 many different people saw the new soul of Italy created here by the thousand on these rocks of Quarto the story is told of great deeds and it is a monument to the country more lasting than any marble, any bronze."
Whew. But I hope you get the gist.
Favorite thing: ... to the thousand (nearly) men - and Garibaldi too I suppose - is swathed in scaffolding and plastic sheeting. All I could tell was it is quite big. The sponsors who are paying to recupero it are proud of their patronage - I could tell that.
The sea gets very wild around here and I suppose it has spent a few years being lashed by salt spray - it would be well due for a recupero.
