Fountains of Rome
Fontana del Mosè
 

This fountain of Felice water (water named in honor of Pope Sixtus V, born Felice Peretti, who restored the Alexandrina water aqueduct), built in 1587, is the work of the brothers Giovanni and Domenico Fontana. Built in travertine with three large niches divided by four Ionic columns, symmetrically placed with four Egyptian lions, two white and two in dark marble.

At the inauguration in June of 1587, the massive statue of Moses, more than four meters high, had not been placed yet in the central niche of the fountain. In the side niches there are the statues of Aaron and Gideon.

In the frontispiece is present the papal coat of arms, while protecting the basins there is an imposing balustrade coming, as evidenced by the inscription on it, from a building erected by Pope Pius IV.
