This is "Porcellino" Created by 17th century Italian sculptor Pietro Pacca
The original - there are only two other replicas in the world - sits in Florence, Italy, in a spot where most travelers pass as they leave the city. Legend has it that anyone who drops a coin and rubs Porcellino's nose will have good luck and will be sure to return to Florence. So - drop a coin, rub his nose, have good luck and be sure to return to Storytown: All proceeds donated to the American Cancer Society
