At the intersection of Via del Quirinale and Via delle Quattro Fontane, two rather busy streets, are four unusual corner fountains. Although they predate the surrounding buildings, each fountain was incorporated into the construction of a corner edifice. The four fountains represent the following: the rivers Tiber (il Tevere) and Arno, and the goddesses Diana and Juno (Giunone). Another striking feature of this intersection is the ability to see three of Rome's obelisks (Quirinale, Trinità dei Monti, and Santa Maria Maggiore).
