Men in Cages

Posted on Nov 16, 2008 | 9 comments

They have been restoring my favorite fountain (Bernini’s Fountain of Four Rivers in Piazza Navona) for years. When will they let the men out from their cages?

  1. I know..it is weird to see them in cages, but at the same time it leaves more space for imagination and less space for large groups of tourists. I am excited to see the result of the restoration

  2. I can’t wait to see either…it’s been so long!! However, if it’s anything like the success of the Turtle fountain, it will be worth the wait.

  3. Interesting.
    This is a powerful shot.

  4. When is the renovation going to be done?

    The turtle fountain is lovely.

  5. I’m not so sure to be honest. I’ve tried finding info on it in the past and can never figure it out. It’s been going on for at least 18 months, so hopefully sometime soon?

  6. Wow! That’s a fantastic shot! Love the composition and light! Well done.

  7. Thank you very much! There was another angle as well that I was trying to capture and couldn’t quite get. I’ll have to go back again another night and try again.

  8. This is one of my favorite photos. Hopefully when I return to Italy this fountain will be done, but things go by Italian time so I don’t hold out much hope.

  9. Update! I was just in Piazza Navona last night and the scaffolding is down. They did it just in time for the Christmas market to start. The sculptures look gorgeous.
