Embracing Peace in Civitavecchia, Italy


Located near Fort Michelangelo between the Port of Civitavecchia (Rome's cruise port) and the city's train station stands the statue, "Embracing Peace". Often referred to as "The Kiss", the statue depicts a US Navy sailor and a nurse celebrating the end of World War II. The statue landed in Civitavecchia over 10 years ago and has also been standing tall in locations all around the United States as well as the rest of the world.

Social Media Description

Where have you seen the statue named "Embracing Peace"?

I can't remember where I first saw the statue named "Embracing Peace" by the artist (Seward Johnson) and also often called "The Kiss" and "Unconditional Surrender". I know that I've seen it in Civitavecchia (near Rome) at least one time before our most recent visit. I've also seen the statue in Key West, Florida and San Diego, California.

Have you ever seen this statue?
