SubjectTaming of the Waters - terminus of the Acqua Vergine (Aquo Virgo)
Description/NotesIn ancient Rome, this was the terminus of the Aquo Virgo. Broken in teh 5th century, it was restored in the 15th c. Urban VIII commissioned Bernini in 1629 to enhance teh 15th-century work, but the projecct ended with Urban's death. Bernini did shift the fountain across the square so that it backed up against the Palazzo Poli and faced the Pope's Quirinal Palace. Pope Clement XII commissioned Salvi. Pannini finished it following Salvi's death. Bracci's "Neptune" is in the central niche. See:
