I have some pretty weird bucket list things. I discovered this place because it was featured on an episode of The Amazing Race. It was totally worth it. There’s a little plaque saying the history of the sculpture as well

Art installation created in homage to people with physician disabilities. Despite a broken leg, this chair stands proud and tall. Next to the UN.

Es un monumento en recuerdo a aquellos que perdieron algún miembro debido a bombas.

Proprio davanti al Palazzo delle Nazioni Unite si trova un'enorme sedia rotta, senza una gamba. Questa statua è stata creata in commemorazione delle migliaia di vittime delle mine antiuomo. E' un'opera di Daniel Berset.
