Lux Nautis Securitas

This is a monument to the Navy crews who once manned our lighthouses: it was erected in 1993 inside the Porto Mediceo. Last Sunday I was quite surprised to see that it wasn't there anymore...

Strange that it was removed. Perhaps moved to another location?

That's just weird. Perhaps it was relocated to give it more prominence. I hope.
