Neptune Fountain

This is the only fountain to be realized during the 20th century, transforming the Bernini waterfall which had run wild for almost two centuries and was irreparably compromised. Around 1930, Attilio Rossi was given the task for the substantial restoration work.

Helped by Mr. Emo Salvati, he readapted the difference of level between the Organ fountain and the fish ponds, creating the spectacular fountain which we can still admire.

In the middle, among the high jets of the fountain, through the film of water, we can see indistinctly the bust of Neptune, the God who the fountain is entitled to.
