Alexander Fleming's bust

This Alexander Fleming's bronze head can be seen in the entrance hall to the main conference room of the Istituto Superiore di Sanità in Rome. It was a present to the Institute by some pharmaceutical firms. The Italian inscription on the marble basament,as a matter of fact, reads as follows: "ALL' ISTITUTO SUPERIORE DI SANITA' / A RICORDO DI SIR ALEXANDER FLEMING / FARMITALIA - LEO - LEPETIT - SQUIBB / ROMA, APRILE 1955".
