Perseus with the Head of Medusa, sculpted by Benvenuto Cellini. Loggia dei Lanza, Piazza della Signoria, Florence, Italy.

Bronze sculpture commissioned by Cosimo I de Medici. This Loggia and Piazza are not to be missed, as they are a gathering place for locals and tourists alike. If you’ve seen the marvelous film A Room With a View, the steps of this loggia are where George Emerson carries Lucy Honeychurch when she faints. Around the corner is the entrance to the Uffizi.
