Putto con delfino (winged cherub with dolphin) fountain, by Andrea del Verrocchio (1435–1488), at Palazzo Vecchio. The palazzo was built as the seat of the Signoria, the fathers of the city’s republican government. And the sculpture was commissioned by the House of Medici––the Italian banking family, political dynasty, and royal house that ruled the Republic of Florence during the 15th century. © thetravellingsociologist
