  • The fountain of the naiads in the middle of the square is the work of Mario Rutelli from Palermo (great-grandfather of former Mayor of Rome Francesco Rutelli), which has carved the artistic group in 1901. The naiads represented are the nymph of the Lakes, recognizable by the Swan holding him, the nymph, reclining on a monster of rivers, the nymph of the oceans, riding on a horse symbol of the sea, and the nymph of groundwater, resting on a mysterious Dragon. In the middle is the Group of Glaucus (1912), symbolizing the Dominion of man over natural force. The water comes from the aqueduct of acqua Marcia, among the most famous of Rome; in fact, Pius IX had previously opened here in 1870 the fountain of the Acqua Pia. The bronze statues of the naiads, or rather Nereids, are unfortunately today full of limescale which make it impossible to see their bronze Majesty. Too bad

  • A beautiful fountain in the center of the square of the Republic. In the evening, even more beautiful, while private has no backlight. Nice after a hot July day, relax in a café nearby.

  • Obviously not as grand as the famous Trevi Fountain, but it was under construction when I was visiting Rome. So I visited here instead.
  • 喷泉位于共和广场上,占地面积非常巨大。喷泉的四周是四尊落体的女神雕像,分别依附在四个不同的动物身上,代表着自然界的不同水系。四种动物分别是象征海洋的海马,象征河流的水蛇,象征湖泊的天鹅和象征地下水的蜥蜴。广场中央的海神雕像是后来加上去的。
  • Very nice. Advice to see you in the evening, because of atmospheric lighting.
