  • On the fountain you can find in almost every corner, it is very pleasant in hot weather, on this fountain we came on the way to the Pantheon.

  • Rome is a city full of history, culture, monuments, churches, statues and those who have more and therefore there is always so much to see and admire so much that something can escape! However, this beautiful fountain built in 1927 and located in the "ward" of St. Eustachius is not the case. Since the Middle Ages the various areas of Rome were divided into wards, each of which had its own symbol to represent it and this fountain in particular, the realization of which was entrusted to the architect Pietro Lombardi, represents the head of a deer among four ancient books. The deer's head refers to St. Eustace's vision of a luminous cross between the animal's antlers and from which his conversion to Christianity ensued. The books, on the other hand, are linked to the ancient University of Wisdom, which is located right in the palace on which the fountain is attached. It has been cleaned and restored over the years and is therefore always a good figure!

  • It is easy to miss this little fountain, because it is close to larger attractions. Since you are likely to be in the area, it is worth a brief detour to stop here.  more »

  • It is a fountain that I first saw on internet years ago. It was a nice surprise to find out accidentally in the streets of Roma, because the fountain is simple. Yet, it has its charm.
  • One of the countless Roman Fountains. To the side of the Palazzo Madama, seat of the Senate.
  • Pretty little fountain overlooked by the most :)
  • Beautiful.
  • Tasty cold water fountain on the way between Piazza Navona and pantheon
