And my last picture on this blog from my second semester in Italia, is this monument.  This monument . . . well, I have absolutely no idea what it’s for.  I like to think that Mussolini commissioned it because 1) the figure looks like an African figure, 2) there is a date (I cannot remember what) that is around the years Mussolini invaded Africa, and 3) it just makes sense, therefore, that this is a monument of Mussolini’s aspire to conquest part of Africa.  But this monument was close to my house second semester, and I passed by it almost everyday.  I’ll miss it for sure.  Just as I’ll miss Italia and all of it’s history and wonders.  One day I’ll be back though.  (taken 8.5.2015)
