Via di San Vito Fountain Rome
History and description
In that year Lombardi was commissioned to provide fountains for various districts (rioni) of Rome. The only criterium was that the fountains in some way had to refer to a characteristic of the neighbourhood in question.
Although located in the Esquilino district, the Fontanella di San Vito represents the rione Monti and its design dutifully consists of four mountains (monti) on top of one another. The mountains themselves are embellished with stars.
