The fearsome beast (too feathery for a dragon, not enough lion for a gryphon) seems most likely to my eyes to be a cormorant, a bird likely to be seen on these coastal waters, and was a sign post for one of Italy’s most exclusive leather goods stores; Marforio, though sadly they are no longer operating here.

More about the beast can be found here.
