  • A beautiful equestrian statue placed in Piazza della Signoria.Nothing special at it,it's just a statue like thousands in this world.There are also a beautiful fountain next to it. 
  • Nice monument up on the horseback. And if as in France, it means that a horse leg is up, this would be wounded in the fight.

  • Going from Piazza della Signoria, all were able to see the equestrian statue of Cosimo I by Giambologna, but few know a little anecdote that lies behind the work. It is said that, before discovering the great monument, the artist has hidden behind a fence to listen to the comments of the Florentines. Among the many positive reviews, there arose a dissenting voice: a farmer claimed that the horse was missing the "castagna", that plaque callosa who have horses on the inside of the front legs and which results from the fact that the Colts, while still in the womb, their paws "related" to each other and only at birth this bond melts , leaving free the legs. So it was that Giambologna brought the monument in the study to apply the "chestnuts" missing, to the great satisfaction of all for this wonderful work that even today we can appreciate.
