Overall the photo has a nice feel, and works well in capturing the feeling of the location
8/10
Composition
& perspective
Without knowing how many images that you made of this situation, I am going to make some general comments, that may or not apply. First, there are 2 different things happening here, that are fine by themselves, but pull your eye in oposite directions. The sculpture to the left and the taller one to the right could be better in 2 seperats images, rather than just one. A image has an entrance, and an exit, and these are fighting with each other.

exposure
& speed
exposure looks good, with good detail in shadows, and highlights...nice overall contrast

I would like to have seen the background a bit softer that the sculpture, but that would have not been possible with the lens you shot with. (you would need a longer lens)

Color &
Lighting
The available light was working in your favor, and more directional that a noon sun could provide. Shooting later in the afternoon was a good call. As far as the color, you choose to keep it overall warmer in color, either with camera settings, or in post prodiction. This is a personal choice, and I think it's fine. This might also make a good B&W image.
10/10
Focus
focus is fine, but your depth of field is quite wide, with a 30-50mm lens. In a situation like this, a long lens would keep your attention more on the foreground, rather than the background.

Description
I like the architecture in Florence and I just want to catch the spirit of this beautiful town... And to add some character I chose a bit different frame.

How to improve your photo
1.
When you come across a situation that you want to capture, really work it for everything it has to offer. Shoot low, shoot high, shoot thru something, different angles...capture many versions, and edit them later.
2.
If you dont already own a longer lens, I would recomend buying one. You dont need to spend a lot, used equipment often works just fine. They will give you many new options in your shooting
3.
Think about each image that you take, they all have a path that your eye travels...a point they enter the image, and one that they exit. work to control where the eye goes.
