Annotation

Monument dedicated to Colombus by the emigrants of Cogoleto. L. Poggi wrote in his book: Cogoleto (Genova, 1971): "In Calle Reconquista in Buenos Aires, our friend Antonio Carta who lives there, tell us that in a two-storied old house, a Columbus's bust above the windows of the second floor remembers the Columbus of Cogoleto". The photo was given to L.Poggi by Antonio Carta.
