Pietro Torrigiano Rustichelli's monument

This marble monument of Pietro Torrigiano Rustichelli can be see, among many others, on the facade of Palazzo Valori-Altoviti (aka dei Visacci - of the ugly faces) in Florence (Borgo degli Albizi, 18).

On the basament, a Latin inscription remembers that Torrigiano was a Claudius Galen's annotator: "T[orrigianus?] MONACUS GALENI PLUS / QUAM INTERPRES FLOR / FLORUIT ANNO MCCXC".

The monument already existed in 1664, as can be read in Philip Skippon's Description of Florence1.
