LOGGIA DELLA SIGNORIA - Welcome to Italy






Location: FLORENCE
Piazza della Signoria
Description: It forms an eminent background for the Florentine "piazza", the setting of town life and events from the Middle Ages to present day. Also called the loggia dei Lanzi, attributed to Orcagna, it was built in Gothic style by Benci da Cione and S. Talenti. Below it stand numerous sculptures, including "the Rape of the Sabine Women" by Giambologna, Roman statues, the renowned "Perseo" by Cellini (1544). The Piazza itself provides the surroundings for statues and the grand fountain of Neptune by Ammannati of the XVI century.
