Description

In Greek mythology, Naiads were nymphs that presided over fountains, rivers, lakes, and oceans. In 1901 they were a controversial subject in Rome. Architect Mario Rutelli had just unveiled the four bronze nymphs that made up his masterwork and the new centerpiece of the Piazza de Republica, the “Fontana delle Naiadi.” The nude figures were considered far too provocative. Conservative citizens were outraged. Nonetheless, the fountain that Benito Mussolini called "exaltation of eternal youth, the capital's first salute to art" remained, as it does today, in the circular plaza surrounded by the baths of Diocletian.
