Lupa Romana captures the legend of Romulus and Remus. These are the twins who founded Rome. They were raised by a She-Wolf ,

I came to Italy determined to find as many as possible. This was an easy one- there are dozens of them in spots, some not expected, like over a doorway near the Tiber. Fun to find.

Lupa Romana is a beautiful sculpture, near the Capitoline area. It is a lovely depiction of the She-Wolf and the twins, Romulus and Remus. The Animal is suckling the twins. They are considered, in one of many myths, as the founders of ancient Rome. Rome...More

This is a surprisingly small statue and not very easy to photograph with any meaning as it is near the wall and on a plinth. The kids loved the idea of it, but wanted a closer look. Worth visiting but expectations certainly need managing.

This is the symbol of Rome, but the real statue is in the Capitolini. The wolf was made by the Etruscans and the babies were added through the Renaissance.
