Between the mid of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, sculptures from or inspired on Europe play a leading role in the monumental re-dening of the urban centers of Latin America. Especially Italian sculptors create a network of cultural and commercial relations which cause an incredible movement of artists, works and materials from the Mediterranean to the Southern American coasts. Methodologically, one must take into account the interconnection between the increasingly local artistic tradition and the input given by European styles, techniques and references. That is not a renewed outbreak of colonialism but amultiple and mutual relationship which inuences Italian art system too. This paper accords such a critical approach to the analysis of the Honduras situation since 1880, when the new political and economic capital city, Tegucigalpa, was founded
