Description

Marble statue of the river god of the Crostolo river. Together with the statues of the rivers Secchia and Panaro it was part of the ornamental complex of the Rivalta Palace. In the park of that palace there was a group of colossal statues representing the three main rivers of the Duchy: Panaro, Secchia and Crostolo. The Municipality of Reggio obtained the ownership of the statues. Two were transferred to the shore of the Bridge of San Pellegrino, where they still stand. The third Crostolo, was placed in the city, in 1802.
