Photographer's Note

Elephant
The elephant statue, one of the most famous in the park, could be a monument to the memory of Horace who died in Lepanto in 1571 fighting against the Turkish fleet, but the interpretation is not entirely convincing. More likely, the reference to Hannibal's enterprise during the Second Punic War, the majestic elephant carries a large tower on its back and holds a Roman legionary in its trunk, as if to crush it.
