Long Description:
In each corner of the street on the very busy intersection of Via delle Quattro Fontane and Via del Quirinale in Rome there is a group of four Late Renaissance fountains called Quattro Fontane (the Four Fountains). They were commissioned by Pope Sixtus V and put into place between 1588 and 1593. The figures of the four fountains represent the River Tiber (the symbol of Rome); the River Arno the symbol of Florence; the Goddess Diana; the symbol of Chastity; and the Goddess Juno, the symbol of Strength. The fountains of the Arno, Tiber, and Juno are the work of Domenico Fontana. The fountain of Diana was designed by the painter and architect Pietro da Cortona.
