Big horse statue in the middle of the square. Nice. The square is magnificent. Be sure to look for the spot marked in the pavement where Savonarola was burned to death.

The Piazza della Signoria has many items that you can focus on, and as large of a monument that this is within the piazza, it can get lost. From statues to architecture, there is not a place you can turn that does not delight. You...More

This equestrian statue is probably in the right place, as it is meant to celebrate an important local man. It was commissioned by Cosimo's son, appropriately enough. The bronze statue seems quite restrained and owes its greatness to its sculptor, the famous Giambologna who also...More

'Nuff said! It's not only the statue itself but the where it is! Nonetheless, the statue just belongs in the setting - not all large statues in public squares are so appropriate.
