Good place to visit

This square was the center of Florentine power in their time of greatest splendor. Its non-symmetrical shape makes it a very unique place, while the small (or large) artworks that it contains form a unique and irreplaceable mosaic. You have the Palazzo Vecchio (Town Hall), the Loggia dei Lanzi, pavement cafes, the Neptune Fountain. Basically, it's a good place to visit to enjoy yourself and let go.

One of the most beautiful squares in the world

It is located between Piazza del Duomo and the Arno river and is a busy area for any traveler visiting Florence. It is a joy for her to enjoy, sit in one of their coffee and get lost in the details of the plaza. There was life in ste neolticos place since the times, the Romans had in it a thermal center and a washerwoman, on whose archaeological remains are edific the fabulous Palazzo Vecchio. However, the Piazza della Signoria today preserves a collection of some of the most caractersticos your little buildings. It was the seat of power for centuries before the construction of an Palazzo Vecchio in contrast to the Piazza del Duomo, where the religious power of the kingdom to settle. The power of the dot Florence beauty and resources. In the thirteenth century had pavement, the best Renaissance artists gathered here and left their work and legacy. For centuries, besides, in the Piazza della Signoria pblicas big parties and important competitions were held. In front of the Palace, on the "Arengario" are the most ancient sculptures, the Marzocco and Giuditta and Holofernes, both are copies of works by Donatello. The Marzocco is a lion posing on one leg supporting the Florentine emblem with "giglio" which has become a symbol of the city. La Giuditta in bronze, is a symbol of the political autonomy of the Florentine Republic. The David of Michelangelo, today replaced by a copy in the same original location of the famous sculpture symbolizes the people (symbolized in king David), who with the help of God, defeats the tyrant (Goliath). A place unique in the world worth enjoying.

Una de las plazas más bonitas del mundo

Está situada entre la Piazza del Duomo y el río Arno y es una zona muy transitada por cualquier viajero que visite Florencia. Es un gozo disfrutar por ella, sentarse en alguna de sus cafeterías y perderse en los detalles de la plaza.

Hubo vida en éste lugar desde los tiempos neolíticos, los romanos tuvieron en ella un centro termal y una lavandería, sobre cuyos restos arqueológicos se edificó el fabuloso Palazzo Vecchio.

No obstante, la Piazza della Signoria conserva hoy un conjunto de algunos de los edificios mas característicos de su época. Fue sede del poder durante siglos, desde antes aún de la construcción del Palazzo Vecchio en contraste a la Piazza del Duomo, donde se asentara el poder religioso del reino.

El poder de Florencia la dotó de belleza y recursos. En el siglo XIII contaba con pavimento, los mejores artistas del Renacimiento se dieron cita aquí y dejaron su obra como legado. Durante siglos, además, en la Piazza della Signoria se celebraron grandes fiestas públicas e importantes competiciones.

Delante del Palacio, sobre el "arengario", se encuentran las esculturas más antiguas, el Marzocco y la Giuditta e Oloferne, ambas son copias de obras de Donatello. El Marzocco es un león posando que apoya una pata sobre el emblema con el "giglio" florentino, que se ha transformado en un símbolo de la ciudad. La Giuditta en bronce, es un símbolo de la autonomía política de la República Florentina.

El David de Miguel Ángel, hoy sustituido por una copia en la misma ubicación original de la famosa escultura, simboliza que el pueblo (simbolizado en el rey David), que con la ayuda de Dios, vence al tirano (Goliat).

Un lugar único en el mundo que merece la pena disfrutar.

Piazza signoria

When you want to feel that art surrounds you to the point where everything else disappears, it is best to approach the Piazza and be enveloped by the beauty of the place that seems to emanate. Here are a couple of points that deserve special attention, as the Neptune Fountain, located a few meters from where Savonarola was executed (remembered by a marble disc). The figure of the god is not great quality, and is said to Miguel Angel, every time she walked past saying "Ammamannati! Marble pity you spoiled!" and the Florentines, with his unique sense of humor, called "il Biancone", "big white thing" however, his companions, nymphs, fauns and other divinities represented the idea of ​​nudity freed from sins of the flesh. Another place is the Loggia della Signoria, instead of actual ceremonies and canopy under which sets copies of artworks that are in the Bargello. And of course the Palazzo Vecchio, with its impressive tower that dominates the city, along with the dome of the Duomo. Few people know that high alberghettino hides (small hotel) where prisoners were Cosimo and Savonarola.

Plaza de la signoria

Cuando quieras sentir que el arte te rodea hasta tal punto que todo lo demás desaparece, lo mejor es acercarse a la Piazza y dejarse envolver por la belleza que parece emanar del lugar.
En ella hay un par de puntos que merecen especial atención, como la fuente de Neptuno, situada a pocos metros del lugar donde fue ejecutado Savonarola ( recordado por un disco de mármol).
La figura del dios no es de gran calidad, y se dice que Miguel Angel, cada vez que pasaba por delante de ella decía" Ammamannati! Lástima de mármol que has echado a perder!" y los florentinos, con su peculiar sentido del humor, la llaman " il Biancone", " esa cosa blanca tan grande" sin embargo, sus acompañantes, ninfas, faunos y otras divinidades representaron la idea del la desnudez liberada del pecado de la carne.
Otro de los lugares es la loggia de la Signoria, lugar de las ceremonias y actual baldaquino bajo el que se exponen copias de obras de arte que están en el Bargello.
Y por supuesto el Palazzo Vecchio, con su impresionante torre que domina la ciudad, junto con la cúpula del Duomo.
Hay poca gente que sabe que en lo alto se esconde el alberghettino ( hotelito) donde estuvieron presos Cosme el Viejo y Savonarola.

The square where the marble beauty made

Personally, I think Piazza Signoria is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Elegant, perfect, exquisite taste for the eyes. The imposing tower of the Palazzo Vecchio seat of government of the city crown heaven. At the entrance of the palace, a copy of Michelangelo's David, The Plaza is a gallery where you can see copies of the most important Renaissance sculptures. Where Savonarola was burned 80% of the artistic heritage of the city, in an act of rebellion against the powerful Medici family, in a society where the rich were getting richer and the poor were always poor. For things of life, Savonarola dies at the stake in the same place where he made his "Bonfire of the Vanities", you can still see a circle in the square on the exact site. The beauty of the naked bodies of all is impressive statues, Renaissance artists take the lines of the human body as inspiration, making the contemplated public nudity beyond sin, everything becomes art. Sitting in the cafe "revoir" and while enjoying the best chocolate in Europe, seen as the sun sets on the naked bodies of marble, and thank the universe to be there. Every weekend I go with my camera and took pictures with the same excitement of the first time.

La plaza donde el marmol se hizo la belleza

En lo personal, considero que Piazza la Signoria es una de las plazas mas hermosas del mundo. Elegante, perfecta, exquisita, un gusto para los ojos. La imponente Torre del Palazzo Vecchio sede del gobierno de la ciudad corona el cielo. En la entrada del palacio, la copia del David de Miguel Angel, La plaza es una galería donde se pueden contemplar las copias de las esculturas mas importantes del renacimiento. Fue allí donde Savonarola quema el 80% del patrimonio artístico de la ciudad, en una acción de rebeldía contra la familia poderosa Medici, en una sociedad donde los ricos eran cada vez mas ricos y los pobres eran siempre mas pobres. Por cosas de la vida, Savonarola muere en la hoguera en el mismo lugar donde hizo su "hoguera de las vanidades", aun se puede ver un circulo en la plaza del sitio exacto. La belleza de los cuerpos desnudos de todas las estatuas es impresionante, los artistas del renacimiento toman las lineas del cuerpo humano como inspiración, haciendo que el publico contemple la desnudez mas allá del pecado, todo se transforma en arte. Sentarse en el café "revoir" y mientras degustas el mejor chocolate de Europa, contemplar como cae la tarde en los cuerpos desnudos de mármol, y dar gracias al universo de estar allí. Todos los fines de semana voy con mi Camara y tomo fotografías con la misma emoción de la primera vez.

Immortal beauty

Find in Florence and lost in it, it is all one. His wonderful palaces, streets and steeples, its wonderful history, its cloisters studded with bougainvillea. Revosante of history and culture, created by the hands of men, those hands, often used to destroy. This created such beauty, such splendor that would not be fair or lawful keep something in particular. I found no better place to remember, the Piazza della Signoria with its fantastic old palace ... The room 500. Dante, Boccaccio, Brunelleschi, da Vinci, Michelangelo ... existed and gave us something that century after century continues to astound the world.

Belleza inmortal

Encontrarte en florencia y perderte en ella, es todo uno. Sus maravillosos palacios, sus calles y campanarios,su historia maravillosa, sus claustros cuajados de buganvillas. Revosante de historia y cultura, creada por la mano de los hombres, esas manos, acostumbradas a menudo a destruir. Aquí crearon tanta belleza, tanto esplendor que no sería justo ni lícito quedarse con algo en particular. No encontré mejor lugar para recordar, la plaza de la señoría con su fantástico palacio viejo... La sala de los 500. Dante, Boccaccio, Brunelleschi, Da vinci, Buonarroti... existieron y nos legaron algo que siglo tras siglo sigue asombrando al mundo.

Veritable open-air museum, the square is home to the loggia dei Lanzi very beautiful works including the superb Persian Cellini bronze. A rgal eye even if the large number of tourists invited to get out of season. Small anecdote: to observe nearly the wall of the Palazzo Vecchio behind the statue of Hercules and Cacus, a face is etched. This "graffiti" is attributed to Michelangelo would have realized back!

Petite anecdocte : observez de près le mur du palazzo vecchio derrière la statue d'Hercule et Cacus, un visage y est gravé. Ce "graffiti" serait attribué à Michel Ange qui l'aurait réalisé de dos!
