This statue is a tribute to Johann Matthias von der Schulenburg. He was recruited by the Republic of Venice to help defend Corfu from the Turks when they were attacking neighboring Ionian Islands. In 1716, Count Schulenburg and his men successfully repelled the Ottoman army during the Siege of Corfu. Italian artist Antonio Gorradini sculpted this statue from Carrara marble. It stands near the Old Fortress where part of the battle occurred.
