The Rometta Fountain, Villa d'Este, Tivoli

The Rometta fountain or little Rome, reproduces allusive key-parts of the Eternal City. One may find the she-wolf with the twins, Rome symbolized by a statue with armour, helmet and lance. At the feet of the statue, amid the water of a channel (the Tiber), there is a boat representing the Tiberina island, where the first inhabitants of Rome settled. Unfortunately the reproduction of the arch of triumph of Titus, of Septimius Severus, and of Constantine were lost, and also that of the Trajan column.
