  • Naiad fountain built on the square in Exedra (Piazza della Repubblica) in 1901 year sculptor Mario Rutelli is perhaps the newest architectural structure recognizable ensemble. The fountain seemed quite nice, although as the historic architectural landmark he pales against the background of the nearby Diocletian.

  • A beautiful of large fountains in the square of the Republic with Diocletian in the background. Lots of traffic around the fountain, still worth a visit.

  • The fountain of the naiads is in Rome, in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica. Is the most beautiful among the modern fountains of Rome, created with the aim of providing a monumental perspective then the elegant via Nazionale. It was built in 1888 to designs by Alessandro Guerrieri, who around the large circular tank poses four chalk Lions.

  • A beautiful fountain in the Centre of Piazza della Repubblica. The location is certainly lucky to be able to admire the work. The square is already great for where the fountain is "small" and in an urban context confused why you don't notice immediately. Once across the square towards the square you can admire beautiful bronze sculptures of naiads: the nymph of the Lakes, taking with him a Swan; the nymph, reclining on an aquatic Monster; the nymph of groundwater, lying above a dragon; the nymph of the oceans, horseback symbol of the sea. In the middle is the sculptural work of Glaucus, a naked male figure holding a dolphin, this to symbolize the domination of man over nature, from whose mouth comes out the Central Gush. From Wikipedia: fountain of the naiads location particularly sensual and lascivious statues, and the sheen of the curvaceous bodies are wet from the water, turned out to be a show immoral and indecent for the conservative wing of faith skullcap who still was alive in City, and was spokesman for L'Osservatore Romano, the Vatican newspaper; Despite initially had been kept a wooden fence to block the view of the monument (waiting for the Municipality to take position on the protests), the coming and going of young men loitered around the railing to watch the statues between the boards rough wasn't that heighten the sense of scandal that the fountain was. The controversy grew, in the name of decency and respectability, and kept for a piece, but the town embraced progressive and theses, in addition to not remove water nymphs, as the current more Puritan would want, 10 February 1901 he let the Romans, following a half popular uprising, cut down the fence.
