As you may have noticed, a lot of the heraldry in public places in Florence can be monochromatic, being simply carved (generally in stone or sometimes wood) and left unpainted. There are, however, a number of exceptions to this general statement. So today we present for your viewing pleasure, some of the full-color renditions of coats of arms that we found as we walked the streets of Florence. (I’ve placed them in alphabetical order by surname.)
BEFOREs and AFTERs!
