- 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'.
