The names are Italian. So it must be in Italy.

Obviously a war memorial, and somewhere in Italy? Sorry, can't be more specific than that!

By the date, you were on the CruiseMates cruise in Italy. One of your other cruisemates should be able to identify the location; I can't.

We were on that Cruisemates cruise. This has been on long enough that I feel that I can respond. It is in Venice, Italy.

And the item in the statuary is, I do believe, a caisson, used to transport small artillery pieces.

My Dad was in the artillery in WWII, and my bed time song was often, "As the Caissons Go Rolling Along"!

We were on the Ruby Princess in October 2009 when we took a Ship excursion to Padua, Italy. The city is about 35 KM from Venice.

You guys have described the picture very well.
