Merchants’ Loggia – The four cardinal virtues

0
The Loggia dei Mercanti is a 15th-century building in Ancona. The façade, in Venetian Gothic style, is by the architect Giorgio da Sebenico and is divided into three parts by four raised columns, each ending in a pinnacle. Each of these columns contains a statue representing four cardinal virtues. Looking at them from left to right they are: Hope, Fortitude, Justice and Charity. The sculptures are characterised by their Renaissance inspiration, especially the one of the Knight and the one representing the virtue of Charity, inspired by the iconography of the classical Venus Victrix.
