Piazza Della Minerva ? Elephant, Rome: 18 reviews and 29 photos
The square in front of the Santa Maria sopra Minerva church has a beautiful obelisk on it. Throughout the city are various of these obelisks. All of these were stolen from Egypt. Right now Egypt lend them out permanently to Italy. The obelisk in Paris for example was a gift. The elephant on which the obelisk is placed was one of Bernini's creations. It was initially meant to be placed on the piazza Barberini, but there are some other Barberini creations there now!
