Fontana del Nettuno

Sculpted by Frenchman Giambologna in 1566, the bronze statue of Neptune waving his trident aloft is a classic example of the High Mannerist art of the late Renaissance.

At the base of the Neptune Fountain, or  Fontana del Nettuno, in the circular pools, the four sirens spouting water from their breasts represent the four continents. Four cherubs represent the winds.

The fountain is particularly effective when floodlit at night.

Practicall Info

The muscular statue of Neptune Fountain stands on a pretty Renaissance plinth on the western edge of Piazza Maggiore, in the heart of the old city.
