The quirky monument to the Roman poet Carlo Alberto Salustri (1871-1950), who wrote under the pen name of Trilussa (an anagram of his surname), was created by Lorenzo Ferri in 1954.
The monument to Trilussa, who wrote in Romanesco, the dialect of Rome, can be found in Piazza Trilussa, in Trastevere, the area in which the poet lived.
