Rome fountain Barcaccia cpf 11a 370 1004



Author 'Ninik' (Id 142084 ) : The fountain Barcaccia (the ugly boat in Italian) is a monumental baroque fountain famous in 1629 in the center of the Spanish Steps (Piazza di Spagna) at the foot of the famous grand staircase of the eighteenth century church and monastery of Trinidad des-Monts. This fountain was commissioned by Pope Urban VIII, Italian sculptors Pietro Bernini and his son Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Masterpiece of sculpture in the shape of beached boat taking on water in memory of the great flood of Rome in 1598: the pope of the time, Clement VIII, who had to cross the square in a boat because of the water level. The fountain is filled with a clear turquoise blue water, studded with coins thrown by tourists wishes and adorned at the ends of the suns and bees of the Barberini coat of arms, the powerful Florentine family of Pope Maffeo Barberini (Urban VIII ).
