works by local sculptor Marcello Sgattoni are
located in the central avenue Secondo Moretti in different eras. They
both symbolize the yearning for freedom that inspired many young people
who fought and gave their lives during the War of Liberation to build
freedom and democracy in Italy.
first work consists of a block of rough travertine marble
on which the phrase "For the fallen for freedom" is engraved and from
which depart several chains binding to the soil pigeons
in the act of taking flight.
second, realized more recently, represents the tree of life with a
body on which lots of
small children hang, sucking the lifeblood of her breasts. Below, the
phrase "The sacrifice of the martyrs quenches the thirst of people."
The work was produced with the assistance of the Rotary Club in collaboration with the Cassa di Risparmio di Ascoli Piceno.
