Italian Dragon

I was never at this corner at night but I imagine that
the umbrellas are street lamps.

Beautiful lamp! I checked out the larger photo and the detail is amazing. Was it the only one like it?

It was the only one there...now I wish I had gone at night to see the glass umbrellas lit up.
I'm guessing that it is supposed to be the dragon that lights the lamp and the umbrellas protect the flame from the rain, etc.
I've been trying to find some more information on it's history.
