Fun Fact about Syracuse/Onondaga County …. did you know …..

…. that the Columbus Circle monument was financed by Syracuse-area descendents of Italian heritage and was created by Florentine sculptor V. Renzo Baldi in Italy. The Depression made it difficult to pay for its shipment to Syracuse so the shipping costs were picked up by dictator Benito Mussolini with the stipulation that the inscription “Christoforo Colombo, Discoverer of America” be added to the monument. The unveiling of the monument happened in 1934. Columbus faces west, the direction in which he sailed.

Attached, please find this week’s edition of the Friday Facts. For details on any of these events or others down the road, take a gander at our website at www.VisitSyracuse.org.
