Roman Animals 2


Another animal that we noticed repeatedly in Rome was the eagle – the symbol of the Roman legions. The one above is in Piazza della Repubblica, sharing lampposts with the wolf that we featured yesterday. The one below is just outside the city wall at Porta del Popolo.

  1. Hi Keith and Susan,

    I’m so glad about this post, it helped me put a location to a picture of my Grandfather that was taken in Rome in the summer of 1944 during the second World War. He is pictured with a colleague leaning up against one of the ornate lamp/flag posts in the Piazza della Repubblica. If you would like to see a copy of the photo and get more information you can contact me via my email address:-
