Adjacent to the Uffizi galley is this famous public building of great and elegant arches. Built in the second half of the 14th century by Benci di Cione and Simone di Francesco Talenti, it was a popular place for ceremonies and public swearing into offices. It has served as inspiration for many loggia’s over the centuries. On the façade you’ll find trefoils, allegorical figures of the four cardinal virtues of Fortitude, Temperance, Justice and Prudence. Two marble Medici Lions, Marzoccos, guard the Loggia’s steps.
The loggia is mostly famous for its sublime statuary: Perseus with the Head of Medusa, the Rape of the Sabine Women by the Flemish artist Jean de Boulogne, Giambologna's Hercules beating the Centaur Nessus, Menelaus supporting the body of Patroclus, and The Rape of Polyxena. These have effectively made it an open-air museum.
A great venue to venture in for art lovers, the place is home to numerous sculptures and statues and is known to hordes of visitors everyday. There are no Loggia Dei Lanzi Tickets for visitors which means you do not have to Buy Tickets for Loggia Dei Lanzi or pay any Loggia Dei Lanzi Ticket Prices.
