The equestrian monument dedicated to Garibaldi is an imposing equestrian statue placed on the highest point of the Janiculum hill. It was released by Emilio Gallori in 1895, and has been referred by the title "the Hero of the Two Worlds". The monument consists of a bronze statue portraying the hero riding a horse, which is placed on a big marble base; on each side are engraved allegorical figures of Europe and America and bas-reliefs that commemorate the landing in Marsala, the resistance of Boiada, the defence of Rome and the group of liberty. On the steps up right the monument E. Ferrari had created a crown, in order to remember that Garibaldi was the first Master of Italian Freemasonry.
