Fountains of Rome

This is a directory of links to the pages of my websites where fountains are shown.
There are two lists:

The districts of Rome were defined in a precise manner in 1743 by Pope Benedict XIV. The area inside the walls was divided into 14 districts called Rioni. One of the criteria followed in the definition of the districts was to have an even distribution of the population, at the time grouped near the river. This explains why the area of the rioni is so different. Today the same area is divided into 22 districts.

>

Legend:

The tables contain:

  • the name of the fountain or the name of its location
  • the architect or sculptor who designed it
  • the pope whose coat of arms or heraldic symbols decorate the fountain
  • the century in which the fountain was built
  • keys to the map: first the number of the Rione and of the fountain, then usual map references
  • Size of the fountain (very judgemental): L=large, M=medium, S=small
Note: twelve small fountains in the courtyards of private buildings are not included in the list and can be seen in Fountains in the Courtyards of Rome.
