This is an amazing sculpture which evokes feeling of families leaving for overseas an maybe never returning! It is on a Piazza in Desenzano opposite Ferry Terminal. There is a very nice bar at the Mayer Hotel from which to view it and people watch.

A beautiful monument in Desenzano that stretches towards the lake, celebrating the exploits of the aviators of the High Speed ​​Department, a mythical group of daring experimenters of "extreme" flight, which brought the name of Desenzano to the international limelight in the 1930s.

A quite stunning yet so simple monument. Situated in the centre of town, well worth s walk around. Located just along the road from a small market - nice intro to the town.

Very amazing and eye catching sculpture. I loved the bread shops too where you can visit and buy huge breads. Very good place to be around Lago de Garda

You can`t miss if you walk in the city center. It`s made of wood and a bit peculiar for such a monument.

This piece of artwork located just outside the ferry terminal is very interesting and much bigger than expected. It is placed in a lovely location of Desenzano Del Garda; well worth a good look round if your in the area.

Right on the waterfront by the Lake ferry station and bus depot is this very unusual artwork. To appriciate it you need to walk around it and view from all angles. The aviator del velocita is especially striking at night as it is cleverly illuminated.
