  • Arriving in front of the Capitol you will find the street of Polluce. Pleasant and very beautiful opera. You will definitely see it being in one of the most visited and famous areas in the city!

  • Polluce, the immortal hero of Greek mythology, is on the right side of the staircase at the top of the Cordonata. With his twin Castore is one of the Dark Gods, the sons of Zeus. It is said, however, that the first was the son of Tindaro, Leda's husband, so Polluce, son of the god, was immortal, unlike his human brother. The two boys were really close and whatever decision they had to make they did it together, never arguing. When Castore was killed and sent to the underworld, Polluce, not wanting to part with his beloved brother, asked Zeus to free him from immortality so that he could be reunited with him. Moved, the god allowed them to stay together, one day in the Underworld and one day in Olympus. Then, as a reward for such brotherly love, he brought both to heaven, in the form of a constellation. And there they remained inseparable, forever.

  • As you know, the legendary Castor and Pollux, "the lads of zevs" - Dioxura that is, were twins, so it is impossible to distinguish them from each other ... How impossible to distinguish from each other and their statues crowning the top of the ladder Cordonat ... Hint for inquisitive tourists - Pollux holds the horse with his left hand...

  • At the end of the Cordonata we face the statues of the dioscuri, the twins Castor and Pollux. On the right we have to Pollux: were placed here in 1584, but were found in 1560, during the works within the Ghetto and were supposed to be part of a temple dedicated to them. Like her sister ship, proud and majestic.
