  • Located next to the famous Oak of the Badger, the fountain, consists of purely architectural elements, and elevates its stele on the open tub in the middle of two volutes. On the front, the emblems of bucolic poetry are recognizable: the sword, with the cross handle and the downward pointing carved along the pillar, symbol of the muse of the Melpomene song, and the three-pronged lyre in the form of a shield that surmounts the sculpture, symbol of the tersicore dance muse. On the back is engraved a verse from the 15th song of the famous opera "The Freed Jerusalem". No respect is due to her. On the other hand, who cares. Daily choked by cars and lapped by mopeds parked, because parking, here, is rare, and not far away is the Children's Hospital Child Jesus.

  • This fountain was built in 1929 takes its name from the oak tree dedicated to the poet Tasso inspiration of his works placed at the top of the ramp that leads to the Hospital of the infant Jesus to the passeggiata del Gianicolo. A local architectural element that should be restored and most valued rather than being left to neglect.

  • I've been seeing him for years. Every summer a series of new shows to be able to spend beautiful evenings of outdoor theater. It is a small amphitheater, so you sit on the steps and can hardly take advantage of those with motor handicaps.

  • It is an event of the Roman Summer that has been repeated since 1965, in the sign of culture and fun: offered to us by a company of good, capable and humble actors. At the Gianicolo, summer doesn't come unless there's the Plautian Theatre at the Rate Oak
