"Roll a coin down his snout and you'll return" Where to find the Bronze Boar Tip by guell

  The Bronze Boar
by guell

Fondest memory: Master Pietro Tacca originally sculpted this bronze boar, located in front of the Mercato Nuovo, in the early 17th century.

It is said that rolling a coin down its snout into the fountain brings good luck, and that whoever does so will not fail to return to Florence one day.
