Description

Aristocratically isolated, vast and regular, Piazza Farnese is in a quiet spot decorated with two big twin fountains of Egyptian granite coming from the baths of Caracalla. Their arrangement is attributed to Girolamo Rainaldi. The square is overlooked by the palace of the same name, one of the most beautiful buildings of 16th century in Rome. Sometimes the square was converted into a lake using the water of the fountains. This original tradition was then inherited by Piazza Navona.
