This statue was a gift from the City of Rome in 1932 and holds historic and artistic value. This was a crime against art, a crime against Parks, and a crime against all the citizens of Cincinnati. We hope to see it safely returned to its original place in Eden Park.Referred to CM for a Report  Action details Video Video
