an arch in the middle of a city at night
Piazza della Repubblica's porticos with the triumphal arch, called the "Arcone", was designed by Micheli and was inspired by Florentine Renaissance architecture. On top of the Arcone is an allegorical group of three women in plaster, representing Italy, Art and Science. The Florentines instead nicknamed them after three famous prostitutes of the era, la Starnotti, la Cipischioni e la Trattienghi. Having deteriorated, the group was removed in 1904
