Sculptures in Florence Are Memorable Figures

Sue stands next to the Neptune Fountain in Piazza della Signoria.






Piazzas in Italy are still the gathering places they have been for centuries. Today, they attract tourists and often feature great architecture and opportunities to grab a drink and/or meal at an outdoor cafe.

One, the Piazza della Signoria in Florence, is breathtaking as a sculpture exhibit. In a place where a bell once signaled an important public meeting, people from around the world gather and take photos to record their visit.


The piazza features several sculpture of nudes entangled with each other. Can anyone identify this one?

From one piece of marble, Giambologna carved the Rape of the Sabine Women.
