20. Galloni Tomb

by Cesare Zocchi
The monument depicts a sarcophagus flanked by an angel looking upwards, holding an upside down torch in its left hand and pointing to the tomb with its right; a clear Allegory of Fame. The tomb and its monument originally belonged to the Piva family, and later passed under the ownership of the Galloni family in the early twentieth century. It was sculpted by Cesare Zocchi, whose statues adorn the façade of the Duomo of Florence and the monument to Dante in Trento.
