Monument To Honor Tony Stark
A new monument has been erected in Forte Dei Marmi in Italy, honoring Tony Stark, a.k.a. Iron Man. This was done after the character, one of the most loved in the whole franchise, died in Avengers: Endgame.
About the Monument
The statue is made of brass and polished steel and is created to depict Iron Man in one of his most iconic poses, the three-point “Superhero Landing” pose. It is over 13 feet high in length and was designed by the famous sculptor Daniele Basso.

Basso designed the statue as part of his “Oltre Verso” art exhibition which would be held at the Fortino Lorenese Gallery in Forte Dei Marmi. The statue is showcased outside the gallery, in the center of Via Carducci.
Dubbed “Man of Steel,” the monument has been made using similar materials. The majestic statue is rested upon a plinth of white marble, and also features a plaque solely dedicated to itself.
The plaque, when translated to English from Italian, reads: “The first monument dedicated to Iron Man in the year of his death in the cinematic world, we celebrate Tony Stark as the man who dedicated his life’s fortune to fighting for all the ideals that he believed in, while reminding us that we all are the protagonists of our time – that the future of humanity depends on our decisions, that all of us must be heroes.”
