Inscription(s)

A PELLEGRINO ROSSI CARRARESE
scrittore di scienze sociali non perituro
che nel 1815 esulando dalla patria serva
dove andò ospite diventò cittadino
maestro legislatore ambasciatore
negli infidi albori della libertà rinascente
chiamato nel 1848
al governo di roma
suggellò col sangue
la costanza delle sue dottrine
l'italia memore eresse
3 settembre 1876
