The crossroad among Via Quirinale/Via XX Settembre and Via Quattro Fontane was made by Pope Sistus V.
On the corner of the crossroad there are four wonderful fountains, built among 1588 and 1593, showing the Tiber River (the symbo of Rome), the Arno River (the symbol of Florence), Juno (symbol of fortitude) and Diana (symbol of faithfulness). The first three fountains were built by Domenico Fontana, instead Juno was made by Pietro da Cortona.
