The centerpiece of Rome's beautiful Navona Square is the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers), one of the most famous fountains in the Eternal City. It was built in the mid 17th century after a design by Bernini.
The fountain, officially inaugurated in 1651, was commissioned by pope Innocent X, an artistically-minded member of the Pamphilj-family. The fountain was financed with the income from an unpopular tax levied on bread, meat and salt.
The fountain was created by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, one of the most celebrated sculptors in history.
