Another lion from Italy. This one was taken just to the north of the centre of Rome is the large and heart-shaped park known as the Villa Borghese. It is named after the building to which these were originally the private grounds - that building, on the eastern side of the park, now houses the impressive Galleria Borghese. Both building and grounds were handed over to the state in 1902.
