FREEWHEELING FOUNTAINS

Rome has more than 300 fountains. The famous fountain filled Piazza Novana that was built on the site of an old Roman stadium has helped the city to gain another nickname as the City of Fountains. The Trevi Fountain is very famous. It istraditionally believed that if you toss a coin in the fountain you will return to Rome.

It is located at the end of the Aqua Virgo, an aqueduct constructed in 19 BC that brings water from the Salone Springs. The fountain was completed in 1762. The central figure of the fountain, Neptune is god of the sea who rides a shell shaped chariot pulled by two sea horses guided by a Triton. One horse is calm, the other restive to represent the moods of the sea.

To the left of Neptune is a statue representing Abundance and on the right a statue representing Salubrity. The Fontana delta Barcaccia was built in 1629 by Berniniís father; Pietro is lesser known but frequently visited because it is at the foot of Romeís Spanish Steps. This is a great place to stop for coffee and trace the steps of famous writers.

Fontana dei Riumi was built by Bernini for Pope Innocent X, the four giants to represent four great rivers, the Danube, the Ganges, the Nile and Rio delta Plata. The Fontana del Tritone was built by Bernini along with Triton, who was half man and half fish.
