This monument is located at the Piazza dei Miracoli (square), next to the Tower of Pisa. This monument represents the Capitoline Wolf with Romulus and Remus, the symbol of the birth of Rome.

Great place to spend a warm afternoon. You can lounge on the grass and laugh at the tourists taking perspective pictures of themselves holding up the Leaning Tower.

I associate this statue with the city of Rome and the story of Romulus and Remus . There is nothing on site to explain its relevance to Pisa

After taking in all the main attractions that the Piazza dei Miracoli had to offer, we decided to chill out for a while, and stood looking over towards the Lupa Capitolina which is situated in the centre of a well kept cordoned off lawn. Although...More
