The Loggia dei Lanzi in the Piazza della Signoria in Florence is effectively an open-air sculpture gallery of antique and Renaissance art including the Medici lions. On the back of the Loggia are five marble female statues (three are identified as Matidia, Marciana and Agrippina Minor), Sabines and a statue of barbarian prisoner Thusnelda from Roman times from the era of Trajan to Hadrian [I don’t know which sculpture this is]. They were discovered in Rome in 1541. The statues had been in the Medici villa at Rome since 1584 and were brought to the Loggia by Pietro Leopoldo in 1789.
