Identify location from photo, Diecimo, Lucca, Tuscany

Postby MichaelSerchio » 22 Jun 2011, 01:31

Hi,

I'm looking to identify a location from a photograph. There is a statue on the left of the picture which may help. I know the man on the right is Peter Dazi, born in Diecimo, near Lucca, in 1878. I would date the picture to around the 1920s/30s. I'm not 100% sure the picture was taken in Italy but that's the working theory.

Can anyone provide any information on the location, the statue, the car, or anything?

Regards,
Michael

I believe this photo was taken on the Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence, see this images:
