This is a #detail of a wonderful #barock #fountain you can admire in front of the #Pantheon. As art work it has a very complicated story: it was made in the last 20 years of the 16th century after a drawing of Giacomo della Porta, a famous fountain architect.
Today only the basin remains of the original complex. In 1662 the floor of the square was lowered, the fountain support and the steps were removed and the current large base was built. 
In 1711, Pope Clemens XI Albani decided to have on the top of the fountain, in its center, an obelisk supported by a sculptural base with masks and dolfins, made by Filippo Barigioni.  The small obelisk chosen is an #original Egyptian one of the times of Ramesses II i.e. it was made in the 13th century B.C.
In 1880, the original #masks were replaced by 19th century copies by Luigi Amici. The materials that compose the whole fountain are: #antiqueGray #marble, #travertine, #CarraraMarble, #ProconnesianMarble, #redGranite, #bronze. 
Don't miss it!

The Sphere within a Sphere is a #contemporary #bronze #sculpture by Arnaldo Pomodoro. You can find it in many institutions and cities around the world like in the @telavivuniversityiba in Israel and at the @tehran.moca Museum of Contemporary Art in Iran. In the U.S.A. you can admire it at the UN Headquarters in New York, at the Christian Theological Seminary in Indianapolis @cts_indy, at the @hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C, at the @deyoungmuseum in San Francisco, in Europe at the @trinitycollegedublin, in Palazzo della Farnesina @italymfa.
The one in the middle of the picture was donated in 1990 to the Pope and it's located in the @VaticanMuseums, inside the beautiful courtyard of the Pine Cone.

#ArnaldoPomodoro is an #ItalianSculptor, born in 1926, that lives and works Currently in Milan where you can visit his "sculpture home" @fondazione_arnaldo_pomodoro. 

The Sphere within a Sphere" #artWork depicts a huge fractured #globe. Inside the #fracture there is a second sphere also #fragmented as to represent internal gears. The whole work assumes the aspect of a complex machine. Moreover the globe can be turn around on its axle. It seems that once it was enough the sunset breeze to make it turn around. Today only #touristGuides are allowed to enter the area around the globe to show the secret mechanism. What symbolises? The beauty of contemporary art is that the meaning is mostly up to you: a way to make the #artPiece go behind artist will and be both #universal and #individual.

Close to the old northern gate to the city of #Rome, where #PiazzadelPopolo opens up, on the right side facing the #CityCenter, stands the Fontana del Nettuno i.e. #FountainOfNeptune. The God of all sees is accompanied by two fabulous water rings: #Tritons, half men and half fishes. It was build in 1822–23 at the end of the #aqueduct, #AcquaVergine Nuovo and designed by Giuseppe Valadier, the #starArchitect of the Moment and sculpted by a less famous Giovanni Ceccarini, a marbles artisan that passed to history more for a publication about techniques and a new way to transport #marbles than his #inventions.

Yellow or water flag is a beautiful flower, in Italy is called Swamp Iris and grows naturally in humid habitats like the one of the Riserva Naturale Nazzano Tevere-Farfa. We are just around 40km (i.e. 25 miles ) from #Rome and in a paradise for #bikeTours #Trekkings and appreciating the #localFood. I usually like to mix all these activities together with #photography but I leave the choice to my guests!

There are places that have something #magic and #mysterious in them. #Lazio, the region of #Rome is full of them with forgotten legends and secret gods. I would love to bring you #alongtheriver #Tiber to get inspired. Just ask me how. Beauty will save us all.

#TorloniaMarbles Is a widest private #artCollection in #Rome of a noble family of bankers that rised in 17th century.  Invisible to the public and relegated to a few rooms of the original museum for years to speculate on the rest of the walls. Recently the rooms where they were located became a restoration laboratory making possible the current exposition in a special area of the @museicapitolini called #villaCaffarelli (It just reopened for visitors). 93 Sculptures, less than one fifth of the collection, is now open to the public.

This is a special ensemble where a #satyr invites a Nymph to #dance. They are demigods of the waters and wood and they, representing  the wild nature, were loved as decoration for gardens in #imperialTime. He beats the #tempo with an ancient percussion instrument tied under the foot. The #nymph had originally a different head that was maliciously looking at him while she was untying her sandal to join the dance.

In the center of Piazza della Repubblica in #Rome stands the Fontana delle Naiadi. A naiad is predominantly a water #demigodness. Encircling the basin are four naked nymphs. They represent seas, lakes, rivers and underground waters. You can play to identify each of them thanks to the animals that they ride or hold which are symbols of their habitat. The square was built on the original Roman exedra of the Diocletian Thermal Baths.

Today in the main environment there is one of our most charming museums, concealed by traffic and the huge square of the main train Station, called like the ancient Roman structure: #TermeDiDiocleziano. 

The fountain is an important piece of the last #aqueduct that was built before Rome became the Italian capital: the Aqua Pia named after the Pope that sponsored it. The ensemble of bronze naiads carved by Mario Rutelli was a huge scandal as you can imagine for the time. The central figure of #Glaucus, the son of Poseidon, was added in 1912.

#Porchetta is a moist boneless #roastedPork of #Italiantradition. The pork is deboned, arranged carefully stuffed with liver, garlic, wild fennel, fat and skin still on spitted, and roasted traditionally over wood for at least 8 hours. Porchetta is usually heavily salted, around #Rome, the most famous comes from Ariccia in the #RomanCastles and it' s usually eaten with bread in a #panino.
A typical #sparkling #redWine of the Roman Castles is the one in the glass:
#Romanella is a sparkling sweat and cheap red wine that is usually drunk cold. It might not be the finest choice in this #VulcanicRegion but it evokes deep memories in those who lived long enough here...

#Poppies are herbaceous plants, often grown for their colourful #flowers. One species of poppy, Papaver somniferum, is the source of the #narcotic drug #opium which contains powerful medicinal alkaloids such as morphine and has been used since ancient times as an analgesic and narcotic medicinal and recreational drug. It also produces edible seeds. The #cornPoppy is the one you find everywhere in #Rome in April/May, this one is growing from a #walkside. Seeds of these flowers were already found in Egyptian tombs, so they might be original of North Africa.

One of the best #preservedsculptures to survive from #RomanAntiquity, the #CapitolineVenus derives from the celebrated #AphroditeofCnidos, 
created by the renowned classical Greek sculptor #Praxiteles around 360 BC. that introduced to sculpture history the first #fullynudewoman:  the #VenusPudica. The goddess attempts to cover her #nakedness while noticing an audience while is coming out from her bath and getting ready for April 21st party: Rome birthday. The city was grounded by the descendents of her #mortal son #Enea, a refugee arrived at the #TiberMouth and she is ever since  #RomePatron.

The #Pigneto "district" was born as an industrial neighborhood at the end of the 19th century to become today one of the most alternative and #trendy areas of #Rome. In this area live many colleagues, architects, designers and other young professionals. It started to be fashionable because the old houses had only a few floors, sometimes also a small garden, close to the center but in total decay. The prices were cheap in spite of the high quality of life that could guarantee. The streets are full of small shops, bars, restaurants, clubs and offer an intensive social life especially at night. Pigneto is young, alternative and urban. Slowly the prices are going up as the renovations covered almost all the buildings.

Far away from what most would consider the #realRome, that in the meantime it's just a slogan of #overtourism, it's #picturesque as you can see from my shot.

#StrangeSummer also in #Rome but the beauty of the #TrajanForum, the domestic nature make a wonderful contrast against the cloudy sky. The archeological site is also called #TrajanMarkets and promoted by many as the first commercial center of history but no everybody knows the treasures hide inside thanks to the museum of ancient architecture and especially to the genius that designed the buildings: #Apollodorus of #Damascus.
