Cities like to commemorate the historical celebrities who enriched their legacies with extravagant gestures. Mozart was certainly the darling of Salzburg. Still, this square, and the Mozart monument at its center, was almost never modelled after him. In the first half of the 19th century the city was in bad economic shape, and still ravaged by the Napoleonic wars; furthermore, there was already a statue of St. Michael there. But funds donated by the eccentric King of Bavaria, Ludwig I allowed work to commence, and the monument was finally unveiled in 1842. Check out the mosaic next to the monument; it was uncovered during the monument’s construction, and is thought to be from Roman times.
