Offered by the Parker Pen Company for the recover of the “ Head of spring” for the people of Florence, Italy.

💣 The statue of “Spring” , which since 1608 guarded the access to Florence’s Santa Trinita bridge , was demolished along with the bridge itself on August 4th 1944 on a German military measure. 💣 💣 💣

After 13 years of intense work the bridge – who takes the inspiration in Michelangelo and Ammannati – has been reconstructed “where it was as it was”.

Ten of these 13 years were spent in just piecing together the various remnants of the bridge and in assuring that the reconstruction would not vary in the slightest detail from the original.

👏👏The recent completed reconstruction had been heralded by the whole world as an artistic and engineering triumph.

👱‍♀️Only one detail mars its perfection : the statue if “ Spring “ is headless , the many years to search failing to bring its head to light.

🧐All sorts of theories have been formulated regarding its whereabouts.

However, the various leads pointing to its presence in Italy have been carefully traced and all have proven to be false.

🧟‍♂️So this fact lends to the general belief that the head was removed from Florence immediately after the destruction of the bridge by some souvenir-seek soldier

🖊 If this is the case , the Head of spring could be anywhere in the world and for this reason The Parker Pen Company has offered the services of its world-wide organization so that the greatest number of people of all lands can be asked :


….and do you know where it was found it in 1961 October 6th???🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️
