Giuseppe Mazzini (1805-1872) was born in Genoa, Italy and worked for the unification of Italy in the mid-19th century. This bronze bust was created by Italian sculptor Giovanni Turini (1841-1899) and was unveiled in 1878. Turini also created a statue of Mazzini's compatriot, Giuseppe Garibaldi, that was installed in Washington Square Park in 1888. The two phrases on the pedestal represent Mazzini's philosophy: Dio E Il Popolo ("God and the people") and Pensiero Ed Azione ("Thought and action" - also the name of a publication Mazzini founded in London in 1858 while in exile).
