"Bocca della Verita" Bocca della Verita ? Mouth of Truth - in Santa Maria in Cosmedin Tip by CTnightowl

 
 

The Mouth of Truth. Back in the day you would insert your hand in and were asked questions. If you lied legend had it your hand would be bitten off. To keep the superstition going- some would plant snakes and scorpions in back when a suspected liar would be tested.
