The statue of the Redeemer or Christ the Redeemer is a sculpture placed on the top of Mount San Biagio, overlooking Maratea, in the province of Potenza. It was made with a particular mixture of cement mixed with Seravezza marble flakes by the Florentine artist Bruno Innocenti between 1963 and 1965. It is 21.13 meters high.

From 23 to 28 July 2013, the area of ​​the statue was at the center of the interdiocesan gathering for the World Youth Day of that year, intended to gather the faithful who could not go to Rio de Janeiro.

On this occasion the idea of ​​a twinning between the city of Maratea and that of Rio was launched for the first time, where the most famous Christ the Redeemer in the world is located. The municipal council of Maratea approved this on 23 July 2013.

However, the initials of this twinning took place only on October 16, 2021. On the occasion of the Brazilian national holiday known as Dia da Italia, the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro signed a twinning with the city of Maratea in order to share experiences and spirituality three the two monuments, encouraging tourism and pilgrimages. In memory of this event, two plaques have been placed under the monuments.
