Photograph — Brussels — Manneken Pis (Petit Julien) dressed as Gianni Schicchi

Manneken Pis is donning a costume of Gianni Schicchi, a character in Puccini’s Opera. The composer died in Brussels on 29 November 1924.

Also, be prepared to be disappointed. Manneken Pis is really small. The chocolate shop opposite this statuette displays a larger model, made in chocolate.
