This fountain was commissioned by Pope Gregory XIII and was erected in 1577. In 1830 he fountain was to be restored but was replaced by a smaller fountain featuring dolphins and lions heads. Pales in significance when compared to other fountains throughout the City.

Frantic fashionistas, pedicured politicos, goal-oriented tourists, and on-the-go locals cross paths every day in Colonna, a delightful chaos in the very center of the city.
