In 1998 the sculptor Onofrio Pepe began to work on the “Door of The Myth” upon request of the Banca Cassa di Risparmio in Firenze. He drew inspiration from the “Metamorphoses” by Ovid to execute the 42 panels that compose the front face of the door. Pepe has always been inspired by the pagan myths. In 2005, the Bank commissioned the casting of the monument to the Fonderia Marinelli for its new headquarters in  Florence; it has recently been placed in the garden in front of the entrance to the Bank.
