Monument located in the marina area of the city of Livorno. Apparently it depicts conquering pirates but looks more like a sick glorification of slavery to me.

I suspect this statue was erected as both a celebration of a great victory and as a reminder to always be vigilant against threats. In this day and age, it is a brutal reminder of has happened before should never happen again.

One of the most important monument in Livorno. You have to known a little bit of history to understand the place.

Interesting monument with interesting history. It's located near the port in a pretty busy area and not much else to see.

Beautifully rendered sculpture at the end of the port area depicting four Moorish slaves. Explanatory signage tells their story. Fronted by a coffee shop on one side and the harbor on the other, the location is more of a pass-through than a destination, but worth...More

Dark people enchained below a white statue seems a bit... interesting. But it has to do with the history of the city which was under invasion by the Maures

I would say that if you pass by the monumento dei Quattro Mori you will hardly notice that there's a monument worth noticing there...
