A new 1,300-pound marble monument showcasing the artistic traditions of Cagli, Italy, and bonding the small town with Spokane is on permanent display at the Connections Garden at Riverfront Park. Cagli is Spokane’s newest Sister City, a relationship established in 2016. Spokane’s other Sister Cities are Nishinomiya, Japan; Jilin City, China; Limerick, Ireland; and Jecheon, Korea.
