This statue is a further copy made in the 1920 by Davide Rigatti of the copies made in 1871 by Andrea Malfatti of the original statues. This large fountain includes a large pool surround with 4 bowls with rosetta decoration. The four antique Centaurus (Hippocamp/Mermen) are each drilled to spout water into the pool. All Centaurus have cornucopias or shells, making a great water effect.

Each putto have dolphins, cornucopia/shell elements, and drilled for water. The large top basin supports a Neptune sculpture (god of the sea) with the two dolphins with iron trident. The Neptune sculpture was used a lot in the past, in several Roman fountains (example Fontana di Trevi) featured these great sculptures.
