The Fontana di Nettune (1574) was designed by Giacomo della Porta and is located on the northern end of the Piazza Navona. He also designed the Fontana del Moro (1576) located in the southern end of the Piazza Navona.I am always in awe when I visit these fountains...the muscles, the hands, the feet and the expressions carved out of a slab of marble. Unfortunately the fountains were being cleaned during my visit in February, so I was unable to capture them in their full glory. DO click to enlarge the photographs.
