Loggia del Bigallo
At the start of via Calzaiouli stands this Loggia. It was named by Bigallo when he transferred his confraternity, bearing his name, and merged it with the Misericordia confraternity, the first owners of the Loggia which had been built between 1353 and 1358 by Alberto Arnoldi. The confraternity mainly gave a home to orphans who were housed in the Loggetta so they might be recognized, if by some chance they had merely been lost. The arches are carefully decorated and closed with iron gates. High up on the side of the Piazza del Duomo, the statues in tabernacles were moved from the previous site of the Confraternity in Orsanmichele and depict the Madonna and Child, Santa Lucia and San Pietro Martire, the founder of the Confraternity in 1244.
