Abbot Luigi is one of the Talking Statues of Rome. Like the other five Talking Statues, pasquinades - irreverant satires poking fun at public features - were posted beside Abbot Luige in the 14th and 15th centuries. The statue is a late Roman sculpture of a standing man in a toga. It was found during excavations near the Theater of Pompey near Largo Argentina.
