Pietro Canonica’s patrons were the aristocratic families and the courts of all europe, the heads of state of many of the countries of the world, the Ecclesiastical Authorities and many of the cities of Italy, which felt the need, after the “Great War”, to commemorate the fallen with monuments recording the sacrifice they had made. It is for this reason that Canonica’s works are scattered across the world, in Russia, Britain, Holland, Turkey, Iraq, the Vatican, Colombia and Argentina.
