The Source of Modern Wall Fountains

Source Modern Wall Fountains 651280555858984.jpg The Source of Modern Wall Fountains Pope Nicholas V, himself a learned man, reigned the Roman Catholic Church from 1397 to 1455 during which time he commissioned many translations of old classical Greek documents into Latin. It was imperative for him to embellish the city of Rome to make it worthy of being called the capital of the Christian world. Starting in 1453, the ruined ancient Roman aqueduct known as the Aqua Vergine which had brought fresh drinking water into the city from eight miles away, underwent restoration at the behest of the Pope. Building a mostra, a grandiose commemorative fountain built by ancient Romans to memorialize the entry point of an aqueduct, was a tradition revived by Nicholas V. The architect Leon Battista Alberti was directed by the Pope to construct a wall fountain where we now see the Trevi Fountain. The Trevi Fountain as well as the well-known baroque fountains located in the Piazza del Popolo and the Piazza Navona were eventually supplied with water from the altered aqueduct he had reconstructed.

The Very First Outdoor Water Fountains of Human History

The Very First Outdoor Water Fountains of Human History Villages and villages depended on working water fountains to conduct water for cooking, bathing, and cleaning from local sources like ponds, streams, or springs. Gravity was the power source of water fountains up until the close of the 19th century, using the forceful power of water traveling down hill from a spring or brook to force the water through valves or other outlets. Fountains throughout history have been designed as monuments, impressing local citizens and visitors alike. Simple in design, the 1st water fountains did not look much like modern-day fountains. A stone basin, carved from rock, was the first fountain, used for holding water for drinking and religious purposes. The earliest stone basins are suspected to be from around 2000 BC. The first fountains put to use in ancient civilizations relied on gravity to regulate the circulation of water through the fountain.
