GREEN BAY (WKOW) – A philanthropist in Italy has donated a quarter-ton statue of Leonardo da Vinci to the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
According to our sister station, WBAY-TV, the donor was aware of the Green Bay school because five groups of students have traveled to Florence and Italy in the past ten years.
The white statue shows da Vinci and his long flowing beard. The statue was created last year in Italy and shipped to Wisconsin in a crate.
University officials are still trying to figure out where it will go on campus. They will unveil the statue in August.
Sarah Meredith Livingston teaches music at the campus and calls the statue "breathtaking." She is excited the campus can share it with the community.
