Heraldry in Florence, Part Twenty-Two
With all the heraldry we saw in our perambulations (now there's a word I don't get to use in everyday conversation!) about the city of Florence, every once in a while we would run across a coat of arms (or, as here, three. No, wait! Four!) that were surprising if only because they seemed so far from home. As we strolled down the Via Alfonso la Marmora we came upon a church with a square bell tower which had several coats of arms carved on its sides.
