Fountains of Rome
Fontana del Babuino
 

Was Pope Pius IV Medici (1558-1565) who established the habit of fountains called "semi-public" when the pope gave water to an individual who promised to build, at his own expense, a public fountain near his property. The Via Paulina name was changed to Via del Babuino at the end of the sixteenth century when a wealthy merchant from Ferrara, Patrizio Grandi, obtained water for his home and gardens, and built for the people of the area a public fountain. The statue of the Satyr over the rectangular Roman tub of gray granite, donated by Grandi, was not liked by people that recognized the features of a "baboon". So, in 1581 Via Paulina has changed its name by Via del Babuino. The Baboon is one of the famous "talking statues" of Rome.
