la verità ti fa male, lo so ...

The Mouth of Truth (La bocca della verita') is located in Rome in the portico of the church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin. It's a sculpture carved from marble, probably a part of an ancient Roman fountain portraying perhaps the ancient god of the river Tiber.
A legend says that the Mouth of Truth will cut the hand of anyone not telling the truth.
The Mouth of Truth is in a famous scene of Roman Holidays with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.
