The Fountain of Neptune in the north-italian town of Trento, Italy was designed and built between 1767-69 by Francesco Antonio Giongo. It depicts Neptune on top of a round basin. The original Neptune sculpture was created by Stefano Saltiero da Laglio.
Astrogeographic position for morphogenetic field level 4 (exact position) which describes the atmosphere of the sculpture itself: located in the combination of the two highly alert, male signs of Mars: dynamic fire sign Aries sign of warfare, action, speed, strength, sports, fighting, physical mobilization and highly defensive water sign Scorpio sign of alertness, vigilance, defense, strongholds, group hierarchy. sculpting, imaging, photography, visualization.
Due to its important role in the transformation of visual perception & imagination into visual memory, Scorpio is to be seen as the main astrological factor in regard to the practical manifestation of artwork. Scorpio is so to say the actual significator of art production as such.
In my experience in systematic astrogeographical field study and astrological measurement of zodiac structures in landscapes Scorpio has also turned out as highly symptomatic of places of the presentation of artworks of sculpting and stone-masonry.
The position in the two signs of Mars and major astrological indicators for the motivation for fighting suggests that Neptune of Trento has been installed at this site as a representation of an ideal of physical strength, mobilization of efforts and an ideal image of a male role model with an overall function of a guardian or protector of the town.
