Neptune

The Sea God

Fountain of Neptune, Florence, Italy

The marble statue of Neptune is the centerpiece of the Fountain of Neptune in the Piazza della Signoria, Florence, Italy. The figure was completed in 1565, by sculptor Bartolomeo Ammannati. Commissioned by Cosimo I de’ Medici, the fountain symbolizes Florence’s command of the Mediterranean Sea. The statue of Neptune is a 19th century copy; the original is in the National Museum. The other marble and bronze elements of the fountain were not finished in 1574.
