This fountain is located in the southern end of Piazza Navona. Moro means Moor, however the statue could be African also. He is surrounded by four Tritons, who is messenger of the sea in Greek and a son of Poseidon and Amphitrite.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
