Il Porcellino

Bondi with Il Porcellino in Florence

Il Porcellino ("the piglet") is the famous bronze boar standing in the Florence marketplace where Bondi visited in March 2007.

A copy of this boar was donated to the City of Sydney in 1968 (see plaque below) and now stands on Macquarie Street outside Sydney Hospital.
