Piazza della Signoria, Florence, Italy

The Piazza della Signoria is the location of the Palazzo Vecchio (Old Palace) which dates back to the 14th century and now serves as Florence’s Town Hall.  The door to the Palazzo Vecchio is flanked by a copy of Michelangelo’s David and Bartolommeo Bandinelli’s Hercules and Cacus.  Nearby, in the Loggia dei Lanzi, stand a number of other sculptures, including Benvenuto Cellini’s Perseus With the Head of Medusa.
