  • A simple fountain, certainly not "historic", but more recent than thousands of years of history. It is just minutes from the altar of the homeland. If you pass us take a look.

  • It is a fountain located in a rectangular square before at the Church of Santa Maria in Campitelli. Square parking lot as to have a big fountain would pass without notice and not not careful. It was a thin presence, small fountains and fountain.

  • Her presence enriches the already fascinating scenery of the square, revealing to us the classic lines of Giacomo della Porta, built in 1589 commissioned of noble Lords whose mansions enliven the square: Family, Albertoni, dumb and Ricci. The travertine bath, quadrangular with concave corners, once welcomes on its banks the coats of arms of these illustrious families, while we admire the grotesque masks with typical ears asinine and large lips. The lower tank water that flowed from the top round tub welcomes pietrasanta and, on the right side of the Church was moved from the original location before the door of the temple

  • I like the fountains of Rome, only they are very neglected. This was made by Giacomo della Porta and resides in the square of the same name: Campitelli.

  • The fountain in its current location, is not placed in the center of the square, the project is by Giacomo Della Porta of 1589 (it was commissioned by Pope Sisto V). Originally it was placed in the center of the square, but for the expansion of the nearby church, being too close, it was moved, also because the people who stood there, with their voices disturbed religious services. The fountain consists of an octagonal bathtub with linear alternating sides and concaves of smaller length. On it rests a tank also octagonal in shape, with all the linear sides, on the sides in addition to the coats of arms of the municipality of Rome, are placed those of the four families who contributed to the costs of the construction, with the only limitation that was built near their homes. In the center is an ornate balustrade that supports a small basket of white marble, from which the water that pours into the water below gushes. A major restoration was carried out in 1927 and a minor one in 1993, today it would need another, since the travertine and marbles are very dirty and do not allow you to fully admire the beauty of this small but significant fountain
