  • This fountain is located in the vicinity of the bridge Ponte Sisto and it was consecrated in 1626 by the Farnese family.

  • Rome is also known as the city of water and fountains: there are itineraries created ad hoc to touch several fountains scattered in various districts of the city. La Fontana del Mascherone, located down the street of the same name and behind at the Palazzo Farnese, is one of them: it's definitely the best known and in my opinion is not as pretty as her namesake, located near Santa Sabina on the Aventine hill, but still worth a quick detour.

  • Fountain featuring Via Giulia, ancient and important road of central areas of Rome, behind Palazzo Farnese. And it is precisely to this family that is linked to the fountain: it is said that from there sgorgasse of wine ... Other than that, a nice and peaceful fountain in a beautiful area of Rome!
