Description

The Fountain of Neptune is a fountain in Florence, Italy, situated on the Piazza della Signoria (Signoria square), in front of the Palazzo Vecchio.
The Neptune figure, whose face resembles that of Cosimo I de' Medici, was meant to be an allusion to the dominion of the Florentines over the sea. The figure stands on a high pedestal in the middle of an octagonal fountain. The pedestal in the middle is decorated with the mythical chained figures of Scylla and Charybdis. The statue of Neptune is a copy made in the nineteenth century, while the original is in the National Museum.
However, when the work was finished, it was not appreciated in particular by the Florentines, who called it Il Biancone (the white giant).

    Try again with these tips.
    • Check your search term for any typos.
    • Make sure that all unnecessary “Advanced Search” filters are turned off in the left bar.
    • Try other spellings, like “theatre” instead “theater”, or “colour” instead of “color”.
    • Find synonyms, like “butter” instead of “margarine”, or “pop” vs. “soda”.
    • Try “general” versions of your search, like “alien” instead of “martian” or “burger” instead of “big mac”.
    • For long queries, like “cat jumping out of a yellow brick window”, try deleting some words, in this case you would try “cat jumping yellow window”. This is merely an example.
    • Make a request in our forums, or contact us with any issues.
