Fontana del Tritone, Rome
Categories: Fountains, Monuments, Tourist Spots
Stop for a photo op at Fontana del Tritone, a beautiful 17th-century fountain in the middle of Piazza Barberini. Don't forget to lower the camera and really get a good look at the statue in the middle: the muscular, larger-than-life character of Triton supported by dolphin fin tails and blowing on a conch shell. The dramatic attraction celebrates the restored Acqua Felice aqueduct and provides water from the source.

Ένα πανέμορφο συντριβάνι με μια αδιάφορη έως ανύπαρκτη πλατεία. Νομίζω ότι αν βρεθείς κατά τύχη εκεί αξίζει να το φωτογραφίσεις.A beautiful Fountain with an indifferent to non-existent. I think if you are by chance there worth the photographs.show original
I wanted to see this because it inspired part of Respighi's Fountains of Rome. A nice little fountain at a crossroads near a metro station, so super easy to add to your walking trip in central Rome
Non proprio la più famosa e sponsorizzata fontana romana, ma ugualmente molto affascinante. Trovata per caso.Not exactly the most popular and sponsored Roman fountain, but also very charming. Found by accident.show original
It's ok. Might as well check it out if you're passing nearby. I went around late morning. Judging from the pictures it is nicer to visit at night.
This is where I met Alina :)

Carmelo MangiaracinaAdvantage was taken of the fact that a secondary branch of the "Acqua Felice" had been passed in close proximity; so in 1642 the pontiff sought to exploit it for a fountain that, besides the decorum of the square outside his palace, was also in the public interest. It was created by Gian Lorenzo Bernini in travertine. According to mythology, the Triton blows a conch shell to agitate the waves and cause a storm, or to get a sweet sound that can calm the sea.show original
