  • 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
