Foto Cisterna di Latina: Gorgeous Nymph Fountain
The "gorgeous nymph" is a fountain designed by Biondi in the 19th century, located in piazza 19 marzo. The monument had been restored after the damages during World War I. The fountain shows a Roman deity holding an olive branch and standing on a human figure that represents the malaria, once spread in the surroundings. The statues are set on a huge grotto basement.

The old Palazzo Caetani was originally built in the Middle Ages serving as a castle; it was lately turned into a stately home where the Popes could lodge during their trips to Rome. The palazzo was bombed during the World War II and partially rebuilt to house the Civic library.
