  • This monument is one of the most characteristic elements of historic Argenta. Was inaugurated on 13 October 1973 in the presence of the President of the Republic and placed in piazza Mazzini in front of the Church of San Nicolò and the adjoining fountain. The statue of Don Minzoni, highly stylized in its essential lines, supported by a pedestal square section that rushes so your listing. For the realization of the work the sculptor from Faenza Angelo Biancini used the bronze; at the base you can see even a plate of the same material with a series of images. Peculiar posture of the statue: bust is leaning forward almost to welcome the visitor with a kind bow; the hat is also tight in the right hand instead of on the Chief place, precisely as a sign of respect. At the same time the deportment, facial expression, coupled with strong but serena could symbolize the extreme courage of Makin in addressing a fate almost inevitable (which in fact he himself understood and anticipates in difficult times). Through this work, attesting to the deep bond between the priest from Ravenna (which he was parish priest in Argenta) and the local community, we rightly pay homage to this charismatic figure of the last century. Finally, I have to note that on the spot (and I don't mean just in piazza Mazzini) there are no educational panels of any kind; I think it would be appropriate to install someone to help especially young people and visitors to discover and appreciate the area. That said, a stop on site is a must if you decide to visit the city. RECOMMENDED.
