There's an interesting story about a pope not liking how endowed Neptune was and instructed the sculptor to tone things down, so the sculptor put one of Neptune fingers at such an angle that when viewed just right he appears much more delighted than one would have originally thought. Otherwise it is just a lovely fountain but one of the few in all of Bologna & if you're going to Piazza Maggiore take the time to check out the sculptor's revenge.

This would have been much nicer had it been fully functional with water coming from all of the jets instead of a weak stream from just a few of them.

I have written about this under the heading of the fontana in error. The piazza is an important place because of the war memorials.

beautiful palazzo on one side of the fountain and war memorials on the other. We often found pamphlets on political issues being distributed here by people keen to discuss their causes. This seemed so appropriate in front of the memorial to people who lost their lives in defence of their country.
