History and curiosities

ACEA Fountain

It was built in 1962, after a design by the architects Ugo Macri, Giorgio Quaroni and Americo Romitelli, the winners of an architectural competition.

The Fontana dell’ACEA is at its most beautiful in the evening thanks to a tastefully organized illumination. The fountain is characterized by water falling from vertical structures that are decorated with bas-reliefs.

The ACEA fountain is still supplied with water from the Acquedotto Marcio, one of Rome’s ancient aqueducts.
