Venice – Angel Of The City!

Peggy Guggenheim’s irreverence and sense of humour is evident from this 1948 Marino Marini sculpture presiding over the canal side entrance to her old home: Palazzo Venier de Leoni (Now home to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection).

The bronze male nude astride a horse is hardly what you would expect to be titled ‘Angel of the City’!

Oops…the twist!
Have a fun weekend you all!
