Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I hope you are all well and abiding by the 'Stay at Home' rule.

Have you had pleasure in browsing your archives?

This particular photograph brought back some amazingly happy memories of visiting an unbelievably beautiful city and making some very good new friends.

My photograph shows one of the sculptures on the Vittoria Emanuele Bridge in Rome. I took the photograph from our first introduction to the city, a tour around the city by bus.

The Vittorio Emanuele II bridge was designed by Ennio De Rossi and opened on 5 June 1911. It took 25 years to build, destroying the 18th century building, which belonged to the Hospital Saint Spirit, in the process. The 111m bridge has 3 arches with four heavy allegorical sculptures situated over the central arch and four end pillars decorated with bronze Victories.

The marble sculptures represent Liberty, Oppression defeated, Unity of Italy, and Loyalty to the Constitution - source Wikipedia

I cannot find any source which labels these sculptures but, I suspect, that this is 'Oppression Defeated'. Perhaps someone with greater knowledge will set me right, if I have made a mistake.

Keep safe everyone, Bev :-)
