The Statue of Liberty (in English Statue of Liberty), inaugurated in 1886, is a symbol of New York and the entire United States of America, one of the most important and well-known monuments in the world. It is located at the entrance to the port on the Hudson River in the middle of Manhattan Bay, on the rocky Liberty Island.
Gift of the French people to the people of the United States, it was created by the French Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, with the collaboration of Gustave Eiffel, who designed the interiors; the statue is made up of an internal reticular structure in steel and on the outside covered with 300 sheets of copper shaped and riveted together, it rests on a gray-pink granite base.
With its 93 meters of height (including the base), which dominate the entire bay of Manhattan in New York, it is perfectly visible up to 40 kilometers away. It represents a woman wearing a long toga and holding a torch in her right hand (symbol of the eternal fire of freedom), while in the other she holds a table bearing the date of the American Independence Day (July 4th, 1776); at the feet there are broken chains (symbol of liberation from the power of the despotic ruler) and at the head there is a crown, whose seven points represent the seven seas and, originally, the seven continents.
