    These four fountains on the corners of an intersection in the Quirinale is one of the many small pleasures to be discovered while walking in Rome. Not really worth the trip on their own, but if you go to the intersection, you will be next to Boromini's church San Carlino, which is well worth the trip.

    On four corners of a traffic-choked intersection sit these four fountains, representing two rivers (the Tiber and Arno) and two goddesses (Diana and Juno) preside peacefully, adding a Renaissance flair to what would otherwise be a routine commute. We think this typifies the 'local' experience in Rome; daily mundane activities against a backdrop of truly incredible art.

    My first sight of this corner was from the back of a motorino, and it crystallized the particular beauty of Rome for me. On this traffic choked four way intersection, air heavy with smog, these four incredibly elegant statues stand watch, reminding us of the layers upon layers of time the city has seen.

Description

In the late 1500s, Pope Sixtus V commissioned four fountains to be built at an important intersection in Rome. Over the course of five years, the fountains were installed - two representing goddesses and two symbolizing rivers. One represents the River Tiber (the symbol of Rome), another the River Arno (the symbol of Florence), another the goddess Diana (the symbol of chastity), and the last the goddess Juno (the symbol of strength).
