Fragments (frammenti), like their name suggests, are small broken pieces of other artwork, and are a sub-set of material culture. When larger carvings were destroyed, the remains were often discarded. However, on occasion, remaining fragments were spared and often set into a wall. The fragment is not an intentional piece of artwork; no one makes fragments. Instead, they are the leftovers from grander objects that no longer exist. While they may have once been part of an important artistic sculpture, they are no longer of much significance.
- The oldest fragment is located in Castello and dates from 450 AD.
- The most recent fragment is located in Castello and dates from 1700 AD.
- The fragment in the most need of restoration is located in San Polo.
