One of many Lupa statues sprinkled around Italy. The she wolf, Romulus and Remus sit atop a column in Piazza dei Miracoli. This symbol is more closely associated with the founding of Rome than anything to do with Pisa.

Great place to spend a warm afternoon. You can lounge on the grass and laugh at the tourists taking perspective pictures of themselves holding up the Leaning Tower.

This tall column with the bronze statue of a she-wolf suckling the twins, Romulus and Remus who are attributed to founding Rome, is often over looked by all the attention given to the Leaning Tower. So the story goes the grandfather of the new born...More

It was nice to see this sculpture just across from the Tower. I immediately recalled the legend of the founding of Rome. Nice contrast and rest for the eyes after ogling that whitewashed leaning tower for 15 minutes!
