We were on a cruise ship and had already 'done' Pisa and Florence so decided to explore Livorno. To be fair it was a Sunday. However the place was dead dead nothing much to see or do (typical European cobblestone streets, statues, town hall, town...More

An unusual and finely sculpted memorial to the defeat of pirates. There is an interesting description alongside. Well placed near the harbour.

The monument celebrates victory over the “pirate moors.” Important to remember that conflict with North Africans has been a continual theme in Italian history from Hannibal to Libya.

As you walk through Livorno you might stumble upon this statue. On the one hand it is historical but on the other hand it is very upsetting. I’m not one to say that statues should be torn down but this one does not belong here...More

Monument sit in the Piazza Micheli in front of the hotel Gran Duca. From there you can see parts of 16 Th. Century Fortezza Vecchia. Monument depicts the duke Ferdinand I with four Moorish slaves reminder of Livorno’s slave market.

I spent a day with a friend in Livorno. As we walked around in the port, we came across this monument. The monument is interesting and we took a few pictures. To be honest, I would not make a special effort to come to Livorno...More

Monument located in the marina area of the city of Livorno. Apparently it depicts conquering pirates but looks more like a sick glorification of slavery to me.

I suspect this statue was erected as both a celebration of a great victory and as a reminder to always be vigilant against threats. In this day and age, it is a brutal reminder of has happened before should never happen again.

One of the most important monument in Livorno. You have to known a little bit of history to understand the place.
