Situated opposite the port, you can see this interesting building, which was clearly constructed with two different ideas in mind. It features a style that reminds me a lot of the statues of the Four Ríos from Piazza Nabona, constructed by the Moors, as a symbol of submission of what was called the Berbería. Apparently the whole region suffered all type of transfers, hideouts, and barters during the nearly four centuries of its existence, to be saved of the French, of the invaders Germans and the passage of time. It was was based on its sculptor to represent not only several ethnicities of African origin, but the ages of man. From the youngest and vigorous to the greatest and wiser, with wrinkles that furrow his face.
In Florence there are 3 sculptures of David. Of course the beautifully sculpted marble original by Miguel Angel that can be admired in the Gallery of the Academy, in a preferential site, under a glass dome so you can see it in daylight and admire it from all angles. Another replica is in Piazza della Signoria, opposite Palazzo Vecchio, and if you're not warned you might think that it's by Miguel Angel, as it's the same size but it's not marble. The third replica is in the middle of Piazzale Mighelangelo, which is up a hill that dominates the city, in Oltramo neighborhood. If you climb the neighborhood has splendid mansions and when you get there, once you've taken thousands of photos of the city, you can see San Miniato al Monte Church.
Our first encounter in Pisa is Ulisse Dini, which was greatly unknown until we found the information on his statue. Dini was a mathematician and politician who was heavily involved in the development of the city of Pisa, and lived early last century. This indeed is worthy of a statue and a small step for the history lesson.
A true local star, Giacomo Puccini is a native Italian composer from Lucca, where you can visit the house where he was born, and even the museum. The statue is just outside the museum on the square of the same name. It is a final tribute, that is respected by the Italians and tourists who are traveling and make a stop.
This statue of Filippo Brunelleschi, a tribute to the first architect of the Quattrocento Renaissance architecture, was carved in Carrara marble by Luigi Pampaloni in 1830. His attitude is to admire the work while in the process of creation, so I think it was his design. Born in Florence in 1377, he died in the same city in 1446. A painter, sculptor, architect and goldsmith that excelled in these areas and in everything. See part of his wonderful work through wandering Florence and admiring the dome of the Cathedral Santa Maria de las Flores (Santa Maria del Fiore), the Old Sacristy and the Church of San Lorenzo, the Pitti Palace and the Hospital of the Innocents, only a few in a very extensive list. Luigi Pampaloni, (who also designed the statue of Leonardo da Vinci at The Lodge of the Uffizi) was a student and later collaborator of Lorenzo Bartolini. The work supposed to be placed between the columns of the Palace of the Canons of Gaetano Baccani.
