These lovely statues adorn the waterfront pavement in the bay area. There's plenty of room to snap your picture against these imposing pieces of art.

The Welcoming Sailors - a great photo memory of Taranto. As you walk up to the sailors you start the fascinating walk to the Ponte Girevole and Taranto Vecchio.

This statue is about 7m and dedicated to the lower graded marine ships people. This statue is OK for taking picture the whole day, both the face and the backside are good

The statue and the symbol is good, but what's around of grafitti, broken pavement, cracked railing support, garbage, dog dropping. Not worth seeing.

Between castello aragonese and lungomare vittorio emanuellaIII, a nice statue. As nothing was written about its history, I suppose it is a nice statue in a beautiful area of tatanto.
