    Column of the Immaculate Conception or la Colonna dell'Immacolata - Work on the monument before inauguration was done by 200+ local firefighters.  Every year, on December 8th, the local firemen use a fire truck to place a bouquet around the right arm of the Virgin Mary statue.  The pope often attends. Our guide said that its sort an annual celebration for all mothers as well.
