Admire the famous Trevi Fountain
In 1629 Pope Urban VIII, finding the earlier fountain insufficiently dramatic, asked Gian Lorenzo Bernini to sketch possible renovations, but the project was abandoned when the pope died. Though Bernini’s project was never constructed, there are many Bernini touches in the fountain as it exists today.
The Trevi Fountain was finished in 1762 by Giuseppe Pannini, who substituted the present allegories for planned sculptures of Agrippaand “Trivia”, the Roman virgin.
Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi is a fountain in the Piazza Navona. It was designed in 1651 by Gian Lorenzo Bernini for Pope Innocent X.
Collectively, they represent four major rivers of the four continents through which papal authority had spread: the Nile representing Africa, the Danube representing Europe, the Gangesrepresenting Asia, and the Río de la Plata representing the Americas.
