    This early Art Deco bronze by Eugenio Baroni was restored thanks to our donors.

After passing through the entry gate, as you proceed directly along the tree lined road a few hundred yards you will find this small area with its own chapel. In front and in back of the chapel are the first five masterworks which we were able to restore. Included among the memorials in this area are those of English, American and German residents of Genoa, including the wife of Oscar Wilde.
