Sydney Hospital, along Macquarie Street. The original Il Porcellino is on display in the Museo Bardini in Florence, Italy. A copy also stands in the Mercato Nuovo or Straw Market, in that city. 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.
