Monument to spaghetti to go up in Russia

MOSCOW, July 21 (RIA Novosti) - A monument to spaghetti is to be unveiled in a village near Borovsk, a city to the south-west of Moscow, the project organizer said on Monday.

The three-meter (9.8 feet) metallic sculpture portrays two pieces of pasta, one shaped like a smile, the other colored red. A man and a woman sit on the edge of the 'smile' eating pasta.

The monument, designed by Ukrainian sculptors, will be uncovered on Saturday.

Yevgeny Yegorov, the organizer of the project and also a keen spaghetti eater, said the Italian dish symbolizes worldwide unity.

The ceremony dedicated to the opening of the monument coincides with the start of a local food festival, "The world of spaghetti."

During the festival, a total of 15,000 visitors will be able to try different kinds of spaghetti.
