Such a shame but we will return to see it. Scaffolding means you cannot see this. Not sure when it reopens but check if you intend to visit.

Hopefully by the time you read this review it will have been restored and no longer covered up. Turn around and look at the faces of the resistance fighters on the memorial behind you instead.

This is one of the most known monument in Bologna but unfortunattely under the renovation, so it cannot be seen. We were a little bit dissapointed but what can you do if it needs the renovation.

Unfortunately under renovation at present. I had a peep through the protective fence and clearly this is magnificently grand fountain. Looks like it is about to be made great again!

Nothing to see as yet apart from plastic sheeting covering the statue. Shame but still there is an awful lot to see and do in the close vicinity.

If you came to Bologna expressly to see this statue, you're going to be disappointed as it is completely covered up. But it is located in the attractive piazza maggiore so you're going to see it "inSitu" anyway. From pictures, it looks impressive.

Restoration work was going on. We had a guided tour of the statue. The guide was informative and interested in sharing extra information also.

If this is a must do in Bologna be aware that it is undergoing renovation work at the moment. You can get tickets for a inside tour to view the work being done. Ch ck with the information office in the piazza maggiore.
