I couldn't figure this out. Being beside the Science Museum, from a distance I thought it was a bat. Getting closer, it looked like a soldier. Trying to read the Italian, I thought it was about mountain exploration. Seeing it from behind, I saw a rifle taming me back to thinking it must be something about soldiers in the Alps. I still don't know.

The Monument of the Alpines is located on the Piazza degli Alpini, close to the tourist center in the Lower City (Citta Bassa). At first, from a distance I couldn't understand what the monument was like. I had to get closer to realize that it was actually a soldier, climbing up the two parts of the monument which looked like rocks to me. Later, after checking, I found out it was built to honour the Alpine regiments of the Italian Army. It looks nice together with the small fountain around it.
A drawback are the suspicious guys who loiter in the small park - during the day it's OK but I'm not sure how it would be after dark!?
The statue of Arlecchino is very close to the monument as well.

This is a monument to the alpine army fighters who used to protect the area way back when. Appears to be a soldier climbing between two mountains possibly but we couldn't find any info to tell you about what is was and why it was there. Anyway, it is impressive and no doubt important to the history of the local area.

A rather ugly monument,placed close to the railway station.We saw it only because it was in our way but it doesn't worth special attention.

This monument is also a work of art and architecture, it is located in front of the famous Victor Emmanuel Institute of Bergamo, perhaps the most important Commercial Technical Institute of the City that is classified in the secondary school and the first university courses. Throughout the City and the Province of Bergamo, sending a child in this Scholastic Institute, it has always been a guarantee of excellent technical and commercial. Returning to the monument is very interesting to see how accurately the artist wanted to highlight the movement of climbing that makes the military (a military corps very important and historic in Italy: the "Alpini" Army), who have distinguished themselves for umananitarie their qualities and physical endurance in the first and second world war.
