Fontana dei Tritoni
The Fontana dei Tritoni by Francesco Bizzaccheri is located in the Boario Forum, in a grassy space in front of the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin, situated between two ancient temples known respectively as the Temple of Male Fortune and the Temple of Vesta. It dates back to a much more recent period than the venerable monuments that flank it; in fact the fountain was built in 1715. The fountain's position and theme, which is the same as that dealt with in the more famous fountain by Bernini, make it worthy of fame and respect. The two muscular tritons, kneeling on a rocky mass, hold up a basin from which the water sprays out, and the entire composition is inserted into a larger basin full of water.
