A WRITERS WIT
"I looked across the square and saw a figure leaning against the railing of the fountain of Tritone, which the Florentines call Il Brutto, for Neptune’s ugly face. The body however is glorious and the face only streaked by weather. The man leaning against the railing with his arms crossed over his chest was watching me, as well he might, since for the moment we were the only two people in the piazza."
