Porcellino fountain and the Market:
Next to the seventeenth-century market there is one of the statues most searched of the city, the bronze fountain representing a wild boar, called by the Florentines “the Pig”. Can not leave Florence without having touched the nose of the bronze boar: in the city “the pig” is considered the mascot of Florence because an ancient tradition tells us that stroking his nose brings good luck.
