I went to the Loggia as soon as it was open to public. There weren't many people and I enjoyed taking my time to view the sculptures present. In the afternoon however, it was full of tourists.. The most striking attraction here in my opinion is the Perseus with the Head of Medusa by Benvenuto Cellini. It stands out as... More

It is places like this that make Florence great...walk through the Piazza della Signoria and BAM! More great art. Sit in the shade away from the sun for a few minutes and revel in the intricate details of the statues.

"The Rape of the Sabine Women" is an incredible, spiraling sculpture, violent and representing destruction and pillaging of war. Art often uses women as symbols...beautiful and fragile. I LOVE this piece for it's power, the composition. As a Modern woman, I am tired of my gender being slaughtered in the name of Human conquering. As an artist I do love... More

Was part of the tour and there was so much to see , listen to and walk around, you can be forgiven if you dont recollect some of these monuments - which means, i didn't know of this naked murderer until i saw this heading. That said, if you have come this far into Italy, you must have gotten used... More

Perseus with the Head of Medusa stands guard over this loggia, which offers some shade, a lot of sculptures packed in, and hordes of people milling about. It's a decent place to cop a squat if you need to sit a minute in the shade.

This is a small open air museum with some absolutely terrific statues. It is just up from the Uffizi gallery in the main piazza. The detail on these pieces of work is amazing, especially Perseus with Medusa. Best thing is its free!

Violent display of male dominance over women: the rape of the Sabines, the rape of Polyxena, Perseus holding the severed head of Medusa....fascinating....and all are originals, that is as long as iconoclasts keep their hands off them...or they will have to be locked up in museums, like the others..

Very interesting and beautiful art work around the square in Florance. We were lucky to see a march of all the forces at the day.

I am always amazed to be able to see so much fabulous artwork out in the open where everyone can enjoy it at no charge. I was there one morning all by myself with only one security guard and no tourists. Divine!
