Pin with the statue of Ivan Nikitin. The pin is made of glass.
This statue of Nikitin is in the city of Voronezh on Nikitin Square. Ivan Savvich Nikitin (1824-1861) was a Russian poet. Ivan Nikitin was born in Voronezh into a merchant family. His father’s violence and alcoholism brought the family to ruin and forced young Ivan to provide for the household.
After his first publications, he joined a circle of local intelligentsia that included his future biographer (and the editor of his collected works) Mikhail De-Poulet. He taught himself French and German and read widely in world literature, and in 1859 he opened a bookstore and library that became an important center of literary and social life in Voronezh. His first poems appeared in 1849.
