Statue of the Republic | Capitolio Havana

Capitolio Havana Angelo Zanelli

Installed at the entrance to the Room of Lost Steps, this work receives the visitor with perfect serenity and majesty.

The Statue of the Republic forms part of the trilogy of monumental statues in the Capitol. Its companions, which stand before the main entrance, symbolize the Guardian Virtue and Work. All three are by the Italian sculptor Angelo Zanelli who, as he himself declares, took his inspiration from the very nature of the country, its women and the color of the Cuban sky at dusk.
