ITALY ~Roma-Piazza Navona- Neptune fountain~

..Imposing fountain statue of Rome, the city with probably the most fountains... Thanks Luca!!



 And also a big thanks Luca  for al the effort you made
 for getting me this special stamp and postmark of the
 Sovereign Militair Order of Malta. :)
Piazza Navona is a city square in Rome, Italy, built in 1st century AD. A masterpiece of baroque, this place with the shape of a roman stadium, is dominated by  three fountains..

The Neptune Fountain was  designed by Giacomo della Porta during the 16th century. The statue in Neptune Fountain, which depicts Neptune holding his trident fighting with an octopus  surrounded by sea nymphs, was added later in the 19th century.
