Il Porcellino

Il Porcellino

I don’t know if you guys remember the movie “Hannibal”? Anyone remember the scene when Lecter slashed a detective in the thigh and the detective was washing off the blood in a fountain that had a statue of a boar? Well this was the statue. There’s a reason for the snout being shiny. Legend has it that if you rub the snout and put a coin in the mouth of the boar called “Porcellino”, you’ll return to Florence. So you have throngs of people lining up and rubbing the snout all day. Apparently it works 🙂
