  • The theme is a Roman fountain that is easy to understand. I can see the appearance that is designed centering on the child in the front.

  • We laugh... Not to cry! We went to his research via Giulia. Honestly, we struggled to escort you, hidden as it is from the cars of the residents parked on the road. The fountain of the Putto we noticed by chance, on the corner that Palazzo Sacchetti forms with Cefalo alley. A small niche kiosk, in which a sympathetic amorino, showing floridity in appearance, surrounds the tails of two dolphins. On the sides, two caryatids support an elegant ornamental frame. Now dry, it is there, to be corollary to the valuable constructions scattered in the street. The neglect has reduced it in pitiful conditions, but, in spite of the degradation, it is worthy to be admired. And we, in a temporal leap, imagine it in its former splendor.

  • This is none other than the original prototype ancestor or rather fountain with sculpture in Brussels on "baby who pees" or rather "Manneken pis" as can be seen from the mouth of water placed right below the Putto, today unfortunately often obscured by auto in Park. Very cute and certainly elegant setting where this fountain is located, to embellish the façade of the palazzo Sacchetti artistic at the alley of the Mullet. Under a window on the ground floor you can admire a small Cherub almost supported by two dolphins with tails intertwined alongside him in his niche, fountain no longer active but that remains work of authorship that is attributable, as the whole Palace to Sangallo the younger or Perhaps Nanni di Baccio Bigio. Unfortunately it remains only trace of this top, deprived from the tub and the water leakage that had to take place by the putto or, perhaps from the mouths of dolphins.

  • Pretty Fontanella in Via Giulia, leaning in the left corner of Palazzo Sacchetti, corner of Via del Cefalo. Made in the second half of the FIFTEENTH century, perhaps by the work of Sangallo the Younger. In the middle there is a child supported by two dolphins and below, it was a basin for collecting water. The frame shows two women and two faces of masks. In the middle, above the Putto, there is a shell; At the top close the frame the stars, coat of arms of the Chigi family.
