Program of the events dedicated to Giuseppe Garibaldi bicentenary in Taganrog, September 12, 2007

In honor of the bicentenary of Giuseppe Garibaldi's birth, the city of Taganrog will host two new exhibitions at the local museums and the inauguration of the renovated Garibaldi stella.

The obelisk in honor of Garibaldi's visit to Taganrog was inaugurated on June 2, 1961 for the centenary of Italy's liberation. The local artist Yakovenko realized the project of the monument. The bas-relief (Italian hero's profile and a palm branch) was produced by the artist Baranov. In 1986, the bas-relief was replaced due to technical reasons and a new bas-relief by the artist Beglov was installed.
