A Monument for Ferdinando Savoia

Looking at this monument, we will immediately notice its special feature. The duke is represented with his sword drawn on an unusual horse about to fall. The monument was in fact built by Alfonso Balzico in 1877, in honor of the battle of Novara, where Ferdinado Savoia earned the medal for his value, so much so that three horses died under him.
