History Piazza Mazzini Fountain Rome
The Fontana di Piazza Mazzini is located in the center of a small park that in itself is the center of a traffic circle. Four paths run perpendicular to each other towards the fountain.
At each corner of the square basin is a large column. Each column is opped with a large eagle.
On the outside of the base of the columns, in semi-circular tubs, are fountains containing water spouting dragons inside. On the inside, the water falls gradually through a succession of five shells.
Also on display are the figures of two fairy animals spraying water toward the fountain’s centerpiece.
Around the fountain runs a path decorated with a multi-colored mosaic. The mosaic depicts multiple mythological figures as well as the signs of the zodiac.
