Il Porcellino is a bronze sculpture and fountain which sits outside the historic Sydney Hospital, in Macquarie Street. It has been dressed up for the Sydney Statues: Project! as part of the Art & About Sydney festival. The original Il Porcellino is on display in the Museo Bardini in Florence, Italy. This copy was presented to the hospital in 1968 by the Marchessa Clarissa Torrigiani in memory of her father and brother, both renowned surgeons at the hospital. The legend of rubbing the snout of Il Porcellino for good luck, provides a polished sheen.
