Following the death of Marcante, a plaque was placed on the base of the statue in his memory.
In 2003 the statue was restored to preserve it from corrosion and incrustations and, above all, to reattach her hand detached from an anchor, to then be repositioned underwater on July 17, 2004 on a new base, at a depth lower than that previous one.
