Loggia del Pesce, Piazza Ciompi

Okay I think Fridays will be new picture post day. Here is a recent snap of the Loggia del Pesce at Piazza Ciompi. This loggia was originally in what is now known as Piazza Repubblica. It was dismantled and brought to this location around the time of the reunification if I remember correctly (if that is wrong someone please let me know!). The Medici coat of arms is in the center, and you can see the fish motifs that are in the roundels - the loggia was used to sell fish and shellfish from originally, but I don't know if it was used for that in its current location. Currently it is used for outdoor seating for a nearby restaurant, and you can also find a flower stand at one end, a used book seller, and sometimes a nut and candy stand.
