Relaxing by the War Memorial

By Ffynnoncadno  
This spectacular memorial commemorates local people who died in the First and Second world wars. It was unveiled in 1923. Its designer was Mario Rutelli, an acclaimed Italian sculptor. The winged figure atop the column represents Victory, alighting on the Earth with news of victory and peace. The globe which Victory stands on bears the names of some of the local men killed in the First World War.
Most of Rutelliís work was in Italy, but he was also responsible for the 1922 statue of the Prince of Wales, the future King Edward VIII, which stands outside the old college building in Aberystwyth.
