After passing under the famous Roman gate, opening the way to Rome you will see the "something" is located next to them.
How to go through Porta Romana in Florence
Porta Romana is next to the Boboli gardens, from here you can start your study of this masterpiece of landscape design.

Near the massive Roman gate is a statue by Michelangelo Pistoletto, depicting a woman who keeps on its head another woman. Residents have long puzzled that means this statue, and soon began to call it simply "something". And even when it became aware of its name - "Meet the past with the future" - little has changed. Now, you can make a photo naear "something" and leave your friends are at a loss trying to understand what is it :)
