What more do you expect? But for being a fountain it's beautiful! Well, not while under construction, but I saw it a few years back not under construction and it was lovely.

Currently being restored, and unavailable to view; being situated in the squares in front of S.Patronio it would be silly[ and hard] to ignore. It is the work of Giambologna.

It is wrapped in plastic for renovation. It looks like it will take a while before it reopens for public viewing.

This beautiful fountain was build in mid XVI century. The gigantic bronze Neptune is surrounded by four sirens. Simply beautiful.
