THE CITY OF IAȘI IN BRONZE AND MARBLE. MEMORY OF THE STATUES
In this study we wanted to provide a general view of the main monuments of the city of Iași, supplying certain essential data on the same and a biography that will allow the interested reader to follow the favorite objectives in other publications. We were particularly interested by the rediscovery of the initial meaning a statue had, in a certain historical moment and a certain location on the city map. Such monuments aim at embedding into public consciousness certain ideas and values. Most of the times, statues have a special connection to the square, market or building where they were installed. Statues have something to say, to remember in that spot and cannot be moved in other locations without canceling their original message.
