Sensual males sculptures in cemeteries (2)

The Rome cemetery of Campo Verano contains an other male sculpture of interest.
The engraving below seems to indicate, although unclear, 'ARI ALLINI Roma 1875'.

Thinking, reflecting, meditating ?

The sculpture below, for which I havent succeeded yet to find the author or location, seems relevant to start this new year.

The nude young man seems to think, maybe meditating. If in a cemetery, maybe silently still loving his partner.

Paris January 2015 - Stone sculpture looking for Liberté Egalité Fraternité...

Immortality of this stone male sculpture...
Eiffel tower symbolizing Paris...
Paris symbolizing France,
France symbolizing Freedom, 
Freedom of Expression, Democracy, 
Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, ...

The sculpture is looking towards the Tour Eiffel from the 'Esplanade des Droits de l'Homme' (Human Rights place) and Palais de Chaillot.
After the recent events of Paris, I want to interpret this statue as looking at this dream of people living peacefully together, and working together to elevate the human spirit.
