Marble Madness

One of the reasons that Buenos Aires is inundated with marble statues is because of the Italian influence.  States of San Juan, Belgrano, and Simon Bolivar all over town are made of marble.

In the early 20th century, the influx of Italian immigrants fleeing brought their customs to Argentina.  This is notably see in the pasta restaurants on every corner, the endless cups of cafe, and of course, marble in every building and on every statue.
