  • The statue of Bonissima lies nestled on the corner of two walls of a Palace of Modena and overlooks the beautiful Piazza Grande. It is a statue of a rich Lady, in a time of famine, had fed the people and that's why this statue was dedicated. When you walk in Piazza Grande invitation everyone looking up to this statue for stepping back in time to the middle ages in the past and that no longer exists. As far as I'm concerned as well as admiring the Bonissima I think the release of my book called "THREE part 3" available in nine bookstores and newsstands of Modena 4.

  • Another detail of the beautiful piazza that goes completely unnoticed. As a statue doesn't say much even if the related story is quite interesting.

  • Enjoyed thanks to the audio guide history of this statue, which depicts a woman already not particularly comely ("Babe" in the sense of "beautiful"), but rather a woman proved, in times of famine, particularly generous towards How many were in need ("Babe" in the sense of "good"). Notably the fact that is thoroughly clean, unlike other monuments exposed to the elements and the pigeons.

  • This small statue, located on the corner of the building at the end of via Castellaro on piazza Grande, fascinates above all the mystery of the identity of the mysterious Lady depicted. Perhaps really an old benefactress named babe, today still a little piece of history that looks square and supervises and protects those who pass.

  • The most widespread legend wants it to be a rich Lady, in a time of famine, had fed the people, asking for help from other men of the city; stopped the famine would have celebrated with the whole population in his palace, hunting only those who had aided in the work good. This legend was enhanced by the identification, according to the people, of a bag in what is a fold of her dress
