Bocca della Verita

Right before you enter the church Santa Maria in Cosmedin, you will be able to test your truth - just put your hand into the mouth of the mask ("Bocca della Verita" means the "Fountain of Truth"), and see whether if gets chopped off (thanks to Petra for demonstrating it here). If you pull out your hand intact, everything is fine. :-)
