I'm assuming this particular fountain is undergoing some repairs, because last weekend, there was no water... but, the sculptures are rather amazing. Ancient porn ! I just like the Nymph of the Oceans, wrestling with the sea horse... so expressive !

The centre piece of a very beautiful/elegant/busy square and posh street (via Nazionale). Built in the late 1800's this is a fairly modern/young fountain in Rome. What makes this fountain a standout is the four bronze sculptures, at the base, depicting the nymph, of the...More
