The mermaid sculptures were created in 1888 by local artist Diego Sarti, famous for many works of art. These were created in concrete for the 1888 National Art Exhibition, and although they were supposed to be dismantled after the exhibition, popular acclaim resulted in them being preserved as part of the city’s history.
