The Verone on the Arno River and the statue of Silenus cradling Bacchus as a child

Video in Italian | "Verone" is the name of a covered loggia gathering ancient and Renaissance statues

Also the walls coloured in a very pale and elegant green are beautiful in this covered loggia.
At sunset the light is touching, the statues seem to come alive and also enjoy the view over the city.
On display are three monumental works, which come from the Villa Medici in Rome.
Among them, our focus is on the strength and tenderness of an embrace between a man and a child, on "Fatherhood": it is Silenus cradling Bacchus as a child, a copy from a Roman bronze statue executed by Jacopo Del Duca between 1571 and 1574.
