Bernardo Giugni c. 1464-8 Mino da Fiesole (1429-84), Marble. Florence, Italy. This bust is virtually identical to that on Giugni's tomb in the Badia, Florence, but it is not clear why it was made. The format, showing Bernardo's strong profile, evoked Roman rulers and complemented the classical nature of the tomb. Giugni was a diplomat, a knight and an important public figure in Florence.
