Long Description:
Bronze statue shows two nude male human figures wresling. Just 100 feet to the south, there is another statue of a pair of wresling humans.

It is located on the western side of the Stadio dei Marmi. The entire stadium is decorated with 60 human stone statues, each representing a province (region/state) of Italy.

Lately in the local press, it has been noted at how these statues have been vandalized and left unattended.
