Description

The white statue (22m tall) of the Redeemer, which, astonishingly, turns away from the sea, dominates the Monte San Biagio, from where there is a superb panoramic view over the Gulf of Policastro and the Calabrian coast. A mix of marble and cement, the statue was made in 1965 by the Florentine Bruno Innocenti, under the direction of Stefano Rivetti, a Piedmontese entrepreneur, who, in the 1960s, was the promoter of the development of tourism in Maratea.
