The statue represents Domenico Mudugno, better known as the guy who sings the world-famous "Volare". He is one of the most important residents of Polignano. The statue, representing the singer as if he is about to fly (which is actually what "volare" means), is located...More

This location gives you a nice and less crowded view of the beautiful Polignano coastline. There are some shops and stores near by, but it about 10-15 min walk from the main strip of Polignano. The photos from this location can be very nice.

Great statue, in a beautiful town. Everyone knows the song and you can't help singing it when you see the statue!

Because it is an Italian singer's statue, you don't need to see it if you aren't very interested. That said, as a statue, it is pretty good. People were taking so many photos with it, most didn't know who it was.

The writer of Volare is from Polignano a Mare. Great nostalgic feel in this small city. This statue overlooks the Adriatic Sea.
