Not far from Piazza Campo de' Fiori, in Piazza del Monte di Pieta', in the Regola district, set against the Palazzo del Monte di Pietà, there is a beautiful 17th century fountain probably commissioned by Pope Paul V of the Borghese family to Carlo Maderno.
In the upper part is shell valve, inside which there is an eagle with outstretched wings and its head turned to the left.
Below is a mask from whose faucet placed in its mouth the water flows out towards the tank.
On the sides there are two small dragons which also pour water into the the tank below.
The eagle, along with the dragons, are the symbols of the noble Borghese family.
It is certainly not a monument that you would like to see at all costs and for which you would cross the city and take a special trip.
But if you are around, you can take a souvenir photo and, above all, drink its water which is very good and always fresh.

Fontana del Monte di Pieta dates back to the early 17th century. It's located on the facade of the Palace of Monte Pieta. It is quite interesting and attractive, but in terms of greatness and beauty, well you would not want to go out of your way to see it. We just happened to come across it during our walk in the streets.
