The Source of Today's Fountains

Pope Nicholas V, himself a well educated man, reigned the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455 during which time he commissioned many translations of ancient classic Greek documents into Latin. He undertook the embellishment of Rome to turn it into the model capital of the Christian world. Reconstruction of the Acqua Vergine, a desolate Roman aqueduct which had carried fresh drinking water into the city from eight miles away, began in 1453 at the behest of the Pope. The ancient Roman tradition of building an awe-inspiring commemorative fountain at the location where an aqueduct arrived, also known as a mostra, was revived by Nicholas V. At the bidding of the Pope, architect Leon Battista Alberti undertook the construction of a wall fountain in the spot where we now find the Trevi Fountain. Changes and extensions, included in the restored aqueduct, eventually provided the Trevi Fountain and the well-known baroque fountains in the Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona with the necessary water supply.

The Water Features

Water Features 253055168028.jpg Villages and villages depended on functional water fountains to funnel water for preparing food, washing, and cleaning up from nearby sources like ponds, streams, or creeks. To generate water flow through a fountain until the late 1800’s, and generate a jet of water, required the force of gravity and a water source such as a creek or lake, located higher than the fountain. The beauty and wonder of fountains make them perfect for historic memorials. If you saw the very first fountains, you wouldn't recognize them as fountains. A natural stone basin, crafted from rock, was the first fountain, utilized for holding water for drinking and spiritual functions. 2,000 BC is when the earliest known stone fountain basins were originally used. The very first civilizations that made use of fountains depended on gravity to force water through spigots. The location of the fountains was influenced by the water source, which is why you’ll usually find them along reservoirs, waterways, or streams. The Romans began creating ornate fountains in 6 BC, most of which were metallic or natural stone masks of wildlife and mythological heroes. The impressive aqueducts of Rome delivered water to the eye-catching public fountains, most of which you can visit today.
