Mario Del Monaco by DamaInNero Mario Del Monaco by DamaInNero
Statue of famous opera singer Mario Del Monaco, who lived and worked for a long time in Treviso, Italy. He's pictured as Othello, his most famous role. The statue was commissioned by the cultural bureau of the city and funded by patron, Diotisalvi Perin, and many artists joined in the contest. When the winning work, by Elena Ortica, was positioned in front of the local theatre, facing it, in 2011, much controversy arose: some claimed the statue was not good enough, some said it looked like a tomb, some that it wasn't the right place and should be put in the theatre foyer. The controversy lasted until Perin threatened to remove it altogether. Meanwhile, tourists have been enjoying and photographing it.

I'm glad to see that tenors as well are immortalized by statues (as well as the record of their voice) !!
Is the statue new in Treviso ?  Or where is it erected ?
