Statues in Signoria square with simbols

The sculptor’s mature work invites the viewer to walk around the statue in order to appreciate all the details, a new concept compared to the classic way of seeing the statue from the front. After the expulsion of the Medici family in 1494, the Florentine government decided to place this work in front of Palazzo Vecchio, but why all this? It was the image of a power that in a certain way tended to limit the true republican independence of Florence, therefore Giuditta represents the Florentine Republic which cuts off the head of Holofernes who embodies tyranny, a true model or “manifesto” which speaks of the political reality of the city.
