Florence's Little Bacchus Statue - Small

Florence's Little Bacchus Statue - Small

Travelers rarely leave Florence without a statue of Little Bacchus , one of the city's most beloved symbols.

The original 16th-century sculpture by Cioli is a humorous portrait of Morgante, one of the dwarves of Duke Cosimo de Medici's court. Morgante's charmingly rotund figure resembles that of Bacchus (hence the name), but here he sits on a tortoise instead of a wine barrel.
