Long Description:
The bust of Verdi sits atop a tall granite base that is engraved with a harp and the name "Verdi." The inscription engraved on the lower half of the base reads: "Erected 1907 by the Italians of Buffalo, moved and rededicated Dec. 28, 1977 by the Federation of Italian American Societies of W.N.Y."



This bust was presented to the City of Buffalo by its Italian-American residents in memory of the famous Italian composer. The bust was recast from an original formally installed at this location. The original bust is now located in Forest Lawn Cemetery atop a new base.
