Inset, Rossi Monument: Senator Alessandro Rossi, Orator Ideologue


Inset of the Rossi monument, Schio, depicting Rossi with every ornament of likeness as an orator at ease at the lecturn, a stance of confident social power. Note the babe in arms being held up to him by the maternal City of Schio for edification in the twin `Rossi' principles of labour and study. In fact Rossi was a pious philistine and notorious opponent of factory legislation.
