"Fontana del Tritone" Fontana del Tritone – Triton Fountain Tip by Julius_Caesar

 
 

It was created for Pope Urban VIII Barberini in 1642. Acrobatic dolphins stand on their heads, twisting their tails together to support a huge scallop shell on which the sea god Triton kneels, blowing a spindly column of water up into the air through a conch shell.

Address: Piazza Barberini
