Fontana del Nettuno, Rome
The history of the fountain at the northern part of Piazza Navona traces back to 1574. At that time Giacomo della Porta constructed a fountain without any sculptures. But in 1880's Antonio della Bitta completed the construction having added a figure of Neptune hitting an octopus with a trident in the middle of the fountain.
