  • From Via del Corso, turn right to Condotti Street, walk towards the square Spain the second, and then turn right on the Bolka di Leone street, where there was a torlonia fountain with a wall on the right hand side. It is a fountain built in the middle of the nineteenth century, but there is a male mask on the wall and water is out of its mouth. Beneath it is an old-fashioned sarcophagus, where water is saved, and there is water coming out of the small hole under the sarcophagus, and the water falls into a small semi-circular pool beneath it. The sarcophagus had a line of relief and a fine design was quite impressive.

  • In front of Palazzo Torlonia, a public right of way is this sarcophagus used as a fountain. Probably of the 2nd-3rd century, in the Centre is depicted the face of the deceased, placed in the frame of a marine scene with Faun and maidens. Off the wall a mask does leak out a jet of water and the two lion paws holding the sarcophagus. As you read the plaque, this fountain was erected by the Torlonia Family, in 1842.
