  • Paving its regular route from the hotel, our way passed through Via QUIRINALE and Piazza del QUIRINALE to the Trevi Fountain. In the center of the Kvirinal'skoj square next to a fountain installed two large statues of Castor and Pollux, found near the Thermes of Constantine, probably made in the late Antiquity period modeled after Greek originals. Obelisk from the mausoleum of Augustus was added in the year 1787, while the fountain with a granite base was moved from the Forum to the contrary of the Curia in the year 1818. That's the way it turned out, collected from different locations. The square is framed by the Palazzo della Consulta and the Palazzo del Quirinale, which initially was the summer residence of the Pope in the year 1870, later became the official residence of the Kings of Italy, and later President of the Republic. The area forms the semblance of a balcony in the city centre, where you can make a panoramic picture of Rome. True, there are playgrounds and better.

  • And here we go again can't recall whether this worked the fountain during a visit to Rome or again had to contemplate it in dry form? In any case, even in dry form this whole sculptural composition, enhanced Egyptian obelisk deserves attention. Looks fresh and interesting, perhaps, to blame the recent restoration. Recommend. Well, if you want to see something liquid, the Trevi Fountain nearby and in quite serviceable condition (too was recently closed for reasons of reconstruction).

  • If you visit the Presidential Palace will surely see and the obelisk and the Beautiful and impressive fountain in the middle of the square. "I don't believe it belongs in" need "unless you have a lot of time.

  • The fountain of "Rosskopf", called the "Dioscuri", represents the strength of classical art. Commissioned by Papa Sisto V, were placed on a plinth copies of two Greek (4th century), statues of Castor and Pollux; the Centre was added an obelisk from the Mausoleum of Augustus finally in 1818, at the foot of the two giants (over 5 and a half metres), was ordered a beautiful marble circular tank from campo Vaccino (Roman Forum). Beautiful!
