Fontaine de Medicis has fascinated me since the day I first saw it 20 some odd years ago. There is just so much to it. The way the water in the fountain seems to defy gravity is one of the most power optical illusion I have ever felt. The theme of love is played out not only in the beautiful sculpture but also along the shaded sides of the fountain's basin as lovers embrace, coiled together on the benches that line the fountain. I can never just walk past it, it grabs me every time.
