Pantheon, Rome: 272 reviews and 577 photos
In 1575 Giacomo Della Porta designed a fountain to place in front of the Pantheon. Leonardo Sormani carried out the work composed of a multi-linear shell raised on three travertine steps, enriched by four groups of dolphins and masks with a central water basin with jets. In 1711, following the orders of Pope Clemente XI Albani, the architect Filippo Barignoni substituted the basin with a rock on which was placed the obelisk of Ramses II, six metres tall and decorated at the base by four dolphins carved by Luigi Amici.
