Giants Fountain - Villa Lante - Bagnaia (VT)

The Fountain of the Giants takes its name from the two giants sitting on the sides of the real fountain, they are the personifications of the two rivers Arno and Tiber.
The compositional scheme of the complex is similar to other allegories in Lazio such as the Nymphaeum of Villa Giulia, the statues of the rivers in the Campidoglio, the Fontana dell'Ovato in Villa d'Este i giants, with the water coming out of the Caprarola vases.
Surmounted by the claws of the shrimp you can see the coat of arms of Cardinal Gambara.
On the sides of the Fontana dei Giganti, under the balustrade of the vases there are two statues inside the niches.
