It has as its foundation a 25 x 11.50 metres rectangle. The sculptures with which the facades are decorated were created by famous Romanian sculptors such as Ion Jalea and Dimitrie Paciurea.

The statue is the capturing of the she-wolf who, according to the legend, was feeding Romulus and Remus, the founders of Rome. The Municipality of Rome gave this copy to the Bucharest inhabitants in 1906, as a symbol of the Daco-Roman origin of the Romanians. This year are celebrated 1800 years since the conquest of Dacia by the Romans and 25 years after the crowning of Carol I as the king of Romania. It was initially placed on a stone base inside the Roman Arenas. The inscriptions written on the stone base proved the state’s origin: „Senatus Populus Que Romanus” meaning „The Roman Senate and People”. There are other copies of the statue in Cluj, Timişoara and Târgu Mureş. Subsequently, many more were mare and placed in dozens of cities in the country. Other copies were given to various countries as a symbol of Rome’s cordial relationship: France, USA, Argentina, Spain, even Japan. This way, the statue-Rome’s symbol- spreads messages of Italian amity all around the world.  The original piece seems to date back to the 5th century B.C. and was casted in bronze by the Etruscans, on the Tibru Valley. Its “age” was established by the researchers who studied the bronze cast. Being interesting through its bronze-casted legend, our Romanian origin is recalled by the She-wolf Statue. Bd I C Bratianu
