Long Description:
"Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers was the last altar of science. Only hours ago Langdon has been standing in the Pantheon convinced the Path of Illuminaton has been broken and he would never get this far. It had been a foolish blunder. In fact the entire path was intact. Earth, Air, Fire, Water. And Langdon has followed it ...from beginning to end."

In order to prevent the the Illuminati from destroying Vatican City with the use of antimatter, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon must retrace the "Path of Illumination". These are four places in Rome associated with the primordial elements: 'Earth', 'Air', 'Fire', and 'Water'. Each will lead to the next and the last one "Water" leads to the final destination.

Robert Langdon arrives at the fourth place - Bernini's the Fountain of the Four Rivers, located in the center of the Piazza Navona in Rome. The dove on top of the fountain's obelisk will point the way to the final destination, the Illuminati's secret lair. This is also the site where the kidnapped Cardinal Baggia of Milan, one of the four favorites to become the next pope, will be drowned.
