Corso Mazzini is the main street of Cosenza. It is a huge car-free boulevard in which the visitors can feel the exciting mix of street activities (shops, food sellers, people chatting) and arts.

This is possible thanks to the MAB, an open-air museum which hosts various masterpieces of great artists like Dalì, De Chirico and Modigliani amongst the others.

This is the list of the sculptures belonging to the MAB:

  • ‘Le Tre Colonne’ and ‘i Bronzi di Riace’, from Sacha Sosno;
  • ‘Il Grande Metafisico’, ‘Ettore e Andromaca’ and ‘i Grandi Archeologi’ from Giorgio De Chirico;
  • ‘La Rinascita della Cultura’ and ‘il Lupo della Sila’ from Mimmo Rotella;
  • ‘La Grande Bagnante’ from Emilio Greco;
  • ‘San Giorgio e il Drago’ from Salvador Dalì;
