Via delle Quattro Fontane
A perfect example of urban ornament. The corners of the intersection between 2 major papal roads (via Pia – now XX September- and Via Sistina) were ornate with 4 fountains depicting the 4 seasons.
The pope Sixtus V improved that area of the city with a new aqueduct and roads, including via Sistina, that starts at the top of Spanish steps and leads to the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. The same pope committed the 4 fountains in 1588.
