I pass near the Orsanmichele church, once a huge deposit for the City wheat and one of the few catholic church not made in a cross shape.
Sometimes I like to walk the little streets that surrounds Piazza della Signoria, but only when it is packed with tourists. Other times I stop in awe just under the clock tower and breathe, trying to
imagine what it would be like 600 years ago.
Then I pass the Loggia Dei Lanzi, a unique open air museum for it houses real artworks, not just copies...but the real thing, can you believe it?
No matter how many times I passed this place I always find something new to look at.
The Perseus for example is a clear example of how artists those days were obsessed with details, but also filled with narcissism.
The back of the statue's head is in fact its author's own portrait...amazing, isn't it? Right under the Uffizi Gallery porch,then left following the river with Ponte Vecchio looking at my shoulders, always some sight, wether lit by the sunset or the artificial lights.
After a few hundred yards I reach my XXI Century horse and off I go...back to my mansion, well at least it is to me...
