Contemporary Marzocco!

June 27th, 2018toDecember 31st, 2018

The Marzocco is a kind of lion, symbol of the power of Florence people able to defeat even the eagle, emblem of the Empire. As such, it is the defender of Florence. More humbly but not less importantly, now a new Marzocco by the Florentine artist Moradi il Sedicente, made up of tree branches retrieved from the Arno, has been looking after the renewed Piazza del Carmine for a few days, as a symbol of people regaining an historical square of the city.

 

Until 16 September
