I was surprised how little Romulus and Remus were mentioned on any of our tours, even going stopping the forum the founders weren’t mentioned. A small statue to remind Rome of its founders.

A really beautiful bronze statue placed on a column with a classic capital. It is the reduced copy of the bronze statue kept in the Capitoline Museums, the classic symbol of Rome, the nursing she-wolf Romulus and Remus. It is located in the column on the left of the Capitol. It is not one of the most impressive monuments , but certainly very significant.

A fairly insignificant statue amongst the many to be found in Rome, but it just has to be photographed because of the legend. The wolf has been radiocarbon and thermoluminescence dated to the 11th century (not the 5th as had been thought), with the twins being added sometime in the 15th. (Thank you wikipedia!)

This is the original statue that represents the founders of Rome - Romulus and Remus, who would have been fed by a female wolf. I do not know how many other statues of this kind still exist in Rome or the whole of Italy, on the other hand, there are some copies in different cities in Romania - Timisoara, Brasov, Bucharest. It is amazing how much the history of the Romanian people and of the Roman Empire is to be shared! I invite you to visit those in Romania!

A she-wolf sucking the mythical twin founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus.
Beside the Senatorio Palace you can see a copy, the original is inside the Capitoline Museum.
This is the symbol of Rome

This statue at the head of the Scala dell’Arce Capitolina rests atop a granite column situated on the right of Palazzo Senatorio. It depicts the she-wolf suckling Romulus and Remus and is the symbol of Rome

The nice sculpture of Remus & Romulus with the she-wolf on top of the column in Piazza Campidoglio is one of the "must search" spot for visitors. Come and see if you can find the place.

This is a very easy to miss statue on the side of the Senatorio palace in the Piazza del Campidoglio. The statue sits on top of a column depicting Rome's founders, Romulus and Remus being nursed by a she-wolf as per the legend.

A great little statue so be sure to see it, there is a great free view of the Roman Forum just next to it so be sure to check it out!

This small sculpture of Remus & Romulus being raised by the she-wolf sits on top of a column in Piazza Campidoglio. Worth a look if in the area.

Lupa Romana is a rather innocuous sculpture capping a column on the side of Palazzo Senatorio in the Piazza del Campidoglio. It depicts the she wolf nursing the twins Romulus and Remus. Very easy to miss as it is set up against the side of the building that is not easily seen from Piazza del Campidoglio.
