Goddess of marriage and wife of Jupiter

Giunone (Juno), later assimilated to the Greek goddess Hera, wife of Jupiter and therefore most important goddes in Olympus, was for the Romans, the goddess of marriage and childbirth, she later also assumed the role of protector of the state. In mythology she is often angry at Zeus because of his events with numerous lovers. Famous is the episode in which Juno, jealous of  Alcmene, one of Zeus  many lovers,  sent two serpents in the cradle of the little Hercules, with the intention to kill him and he strangled them thus demonstrating his already immense strength. The sacred symbol of Juno is often the peacock. Juno is represented in many works in Rome, such as in the painting of the Carracci preserved in the Borghese Gallery or at one of the four fountains at Via delle Quattro Fontane and Via del Quirinale.
