Mouth of Truth wheelchair accessible tours, it is as unique as what was the manhole of a sewer, has become one of the monuments of Rome

Every day a long line of tourists quening out of Mouth of Truth wheelchair accessible tours at the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin.

Photograph themselves as they put their hands in the mouth of the large pavonazzetto marble medallion which is now in the atrium, more commonly known as La Bocca della Verità.

This large bearded male face in which eyes, nose and mouth are pierced, was probably a manhole of Cloaca Maxima, one of the largest sewers in all of Rome.

The sculpture dates back to the I century, has a diameter of 1.75 m and weighs about 1300 kg.

The mask is very well known, it is supposed that this is the object mentioned in the early Mirabilia Urbis Romae.

Touring Mouth of Truth

In the Middle Ages, the legend that Virgil had built the Bocca della Verità to dissolve doubts about the fidelity of husbands and wives.

The folk tales refer to a young and beautiful woman, the wife of a Roman patrician, who had been accused of adultery because she received visits from another man during her husband's absence.

When the consort became aware of this matter, he did not let himself be moved by the tears of the woman, who proclaimed himself innocent, and demanded that she submit herself to the "proof" of the Mouth of Truth.

On the day the girl had to undergo this examination, a young man, apparently unknown, approached her and kissed her.

Those present wanted to lash out at the intruder but she persuaded them to let him go claiming he was a poor madman.

In reality it was a staging because then when the young woman put her hand inside the Mouth of Truth wheelchair accessible tours could proudly claim she never kissed anyone other than her husband and that poor demented man, which was actually his lover.

The hand then remained intact with great satisfaction of the consort but with extreme humiliation of the Mouth of Truth.

Which, knocked down by so much audacity, from that day did not want to "express itself" and no longer closed the mouth to punish the perjuries.

The scene of the film Vacanze Romane, in which Gregory Peck, faced by a naive Audrey Hepburn, pretends to have lost his hand inside the mouth, also increases its notoriety of the Mouth of Truth.

It is said that the actress believed that the legend was true, so the scare on the film is real.
