This statute is a wonderful sight in the Piazza. Each time I see it I am impressed with the size and incredible workmanship. A must see in Florence, The Piazza is full of similar statutes and nice restaurants.

It was drizzling and quite covered, yet the walk from Santa Croce was worth the visit. A view of the old city, the wall, the old florentine houses in the middle of wide greenery...
