Via delle 4 fontane


The road was built by Pope Sixtus V.
La via fu creata dal Papa Sisto V.


The name came from the complex of fountains that adorns it at the crossroads of Via XX Settembre and Via del Quirinale.
Ha preso il nome dal complesso monumentale di fontane che la orna e che si trova all'incrocio tra via XX Settembre e via del Quirinale.


At this point there are four large statues on each corner of the crossroads that represent two rivers, the Tiber and the Arno , the goddess Diana and the god Juno.
Qui, ai quattro angoli, formati dalle due strade si trovano quattro nicchie in cui sono inserite quattro grandi statue che rappresentano il Tevere, l'Arno, la dea Diana e la dea Giunone.

Bonjour Nazzareno,

Et retrouver le bruit de l'eau.. Je crois que s'il me fallait emprunter cette rue, je n'irai pas plus loin, aller, puis revenir, juste pour savoir, pour choisir. Quelle sera la plus belle. Les mêmes poses alanguies, sur cette couleur de pierre au soleil, "bois de rose" je me ferai volontiers lézard.

Bonne journée à toi Nazzareno.

Curieuse la sculpture de la première photo, un visage d'homme barbu avec un torse de femme?

Un bel endroit qui semble hors du temps. J'aime beaucoup la dernière statue...

@lyliane: c'est seulement une taille extras-larges... Il représente le fleuve de Florence, l'Arno, (le voit du lion qu'il se montre à ses épaules).

"Are you mad about what has been happening inside Iran these days? Well then take a deep breath... blow it all into a Green Balloon... and wait until Friday afternoon to send it up to the sky, wherever you are on this planet. Millions of Iranians inside Iran are planning to paint the sky green on Friday exactly at 1pm Tehran time. The non-violent green movement is being cracked down on the ground, so lets take it to the sky."
