To bad that it is still not finished, and that I couldn't see it only from the pictures. It is one of the main attractions of bologna and from what I read it has been under construction for a long time already

The statue is being renovated. Took a free tour of the site with Bologna Welcome as part of the Bologna card package. Tour was too lengthy because of the need to translate information in Italian and English. Not so interesting.

Can not be see for the moment. It's closed for renovation. That's a pity-it's not possible to see it.
