Francis of Assisi

The modern styled equestrian statue of Saint Francis of Assisi (c. 1181–1226) opposite the Basilica in Assisi, titled Il Ritorno di Francesco, is a beautiful sculpture of a humble man in the right setting, telling the story of an important event in the saint’s life: ‘At the break of the day, Francis, with his reformed inner self, desired only to conform to the will of God’.
