Naiades Fountain in Colors


Today the Fountain of Naiades located in Piazza della Repubblica in Rome had its water colored in green red and white, the colors of the Italian flag.


The action was done by Graziano Cecchini to protest against the project of privatization of public waters planned by the Italian Government and also against the budget cut of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities.
