Piazza della Repubblica (or Piazza Esedra) close to Termini Central Station : It was designed after the Unification of Italy, following the perimeter of the ancient Baths of Diocletian.
The square occupies the place where once stood the caldarium (hot plunge bath) of the Baths of Diocletian.
At the centre of the square is Mario Rutelli’s Fountain of the Naiads, that, at the time of its construction, caused a sensation because of its decorative naked female figures.
In fact, they look curvy and teasing, and they seem to gambol in the water of the fountain flowing on their bodies, creating a very provocative effect.
Today we would say that they are terribly sexy!
