This memorial plate of Alexander Fleming and Albert Sabin is located in the “Giardino di Borgo Allegri” in Florence (Borgo Allegri, 18). This plate was strongly desired by the elderly residents who wanted to show their gratitude to these two great scientists who had revolutionized the world of medicine with their discoveries. The plate can be found in the garden which is now managed by a group of volunteers that promote various events.
The italian inscription reads as follows: "RIVOLGIAMO IL NOSTRO RICONOSCENTE / PENSIERO AGLI SCIENZIATI DI TUTTO / IL MONDO E PARTICOLARMENTE A / FLEMING E SABIN CHE CON LE LORO / SCOPERTE NEL CAMPO DELLA MEDICINA / HANNO CONSENTITO ALL'UMANITA' DI / VIVERE IN SALUTE E PIU' A LUNGO. / QUESTA LAPIDE IN SEGNO DI GRATITUDINE / POSERO GLI ANZIANI DEL QUARTIERE / DI SANTA CROCE IL 10 OTTOBRE 1992".
