Neptune's Fountain

In the heart of Bologna, in the Piazza Maggiore, is one of the most iconic symbols of the city - Neptune's Fountain. The Bolognese affectionately refer to him as "il Gigante" because of his size. The fountain was completed in 1565. Legend has it that before a big exam any student who wants to have luck on his side must spin twice clockwise around the fountain, just like John of Bologna did around the Neptune's projecting pedestal, thus initiating his fortune and his atonement for the "defeat Florentine".
