Rome, Italy. The Western fountain in Piazza del Popolo, the "Fontana del Nettuno", at night. The fountain is identical in structure to the fountain on the Eastern side (lower basin, upper basin in form of a shell, balustrade with two couples of twisted dolphins) but the sculpture group depicts "Nettuno tra due tritoni". Also this group was conceived by Giuseppe Valadier and realised by Giovanni Ceccarini (1818 - 21).
