YEARS: 2008 and 2014

In 2008 Talani unveiled in Florence, at Palazzo Vecchio, an anthological exhibition entitled “Rosa dei Venti” (Rose of the Winds), as his bronze sculpture was set in the loggia of the Uffizi, in the part overlooking the Arno river.

In May 2014, the bronze was temporarily moved to the Santa Lucia railway station in Venice where it was exhibited for two years. It was then inaugurated by Riccardo Nencini, the Italian Ministry of Infrastructure.
