Farnese Fountains on a Rainy Night
I have always loved Piazza Farnese, which is righ behind Campo de Fiori, and these fountains. They combine ancient bathing tubs from the Roman Empire with “newer” Renaissance elements, including the lily and lily pad (the Farnese family symbol). They were recently restored with some support from Roman fashion designer Laura Biagiotti. I had some time to kill waiting for friends in the area so went a little crazy with photos. It had just rained so everything was still a little wet (including me from leaning all over the fountain!). I really liked the color quality of the water and how its liquid quality showed a nice contrast with the hard architecture of the stone.
I would like to include one of these in my show so let me know which you guys think is the best!
