The Taksim Republic Monument
It was made in Italy in 1928 by Italian sculptor Pietro Canonica. The green and red marbles used in the 11 meters high monument are Italian marble. The Atatürk sculpture was made based on his photographs taken when he was going to Kocatepe. The other side has a composition that shows Atatürk, İsmet İnönü and Fevzi Çakmak among the army and the public.
