Loggia dei Lanzi

Loggia dei Lanzi, in Piazza della Signoria, Florence, is a place of history, art, and mythology. It is where the Landsknechte found shelter on their way to Rome, in 1527. It is home to priceless masterpieces of sculpture: works by Benvenuto Cellini, Giambologna, Pio Fede… that are on display, day and night, for anyone to enjoy. Here Perseus, Medusa, Hercules, Patroklos, and Menelaus draw you deep into the most fascinating Greek myths.

Roman photographer, Francesca Pompei conveys the beauty of this corner of Florence in a series of images that are masterpieces in their own right.
