There are replicas of this statue all around the world. Apparently, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini liked to send replicas of the statue to various countries, cities, and private groups in the 1920s and 30s. There are a handful of these replica statues in the United States, including one in Rome, Georgia, one in Rome, New York, and one in Cincinnati, Ohio (see photos below).
